19 Now Jesus’ mother and brothers came to see him, but they were not able to get near him because of the crowd. 20 Someone told him, “Your mother and brothers are standing outside, wanting to see you.” 21 He replied, “My mother and brothers are those who hear God’s word and put it into practice.”
Jesus is in the midst of ministry when his mother & brothers come to see him. He’s told “your mum’s here”.
“Your mum’s here” always gets a response from us & Jesus is no different. Jesus redefines who his mother & brothers are saying that even they needed to change in their relationship with Him. For any of us to be truly related to Jesus we need to not only hear what he says but we also need to “do it”.
Jesus help me to be someone who is truly related to you, and not to hesitate to do or practice what you teach.
