 “’My mother and my brothers are those who hear the word of God.”

Luke 8:19-21

Jesus’s words might be a little bit confusing for us today. However, Jesus is not rejecting his mother or family with these words; instead, he is emphasising his closeness with everyone who listens and practices the word. If we want to experience being close to Jesus, living in communion with him, then we need to take to heart these words of Jesus. It is not enough to listen only to his word; we must also work at living it out. As we meditate on this passage, what is Jesus asking you today? What word of the Lord do you need to act on in your life?

Lord, we want to be close to you, help us to be faithful in living out our faith with joy, faith and consistency.
