Day 3

Pray for us to be led by God as Sons

Matthew 12:49-50

Pointing to his disciples, he said, “Here are my mother and my brothers. For whoever does the will of my Father in heaven is my brother and sister and mother.”

Jesus uses this opportunity to teach an important truth. Jesus has a family related by blood but He also has a greater family. Jesus emphasises the importance of the spiritual family which we belong to with God as our father, it’s even greater than the family we are in now. He’s not renouncing his family at all, but showing that those who put their faith in Christ as the Messiah sent by God they do the will of the father and they are His family. So then as Christ family let us pray for greater unity and love and strength within ourselves.
