Thought For Today - September 25
Who are the brothers and sisters and kinsmen of Christ? Those who have truly believed his word, and have accepted him as their Lord and Savior, and by faith have been born again into the family of God. These are considered to be his family, his mother, and brothers and sisters.
In order to be his kinsmen, we must have a deep personal relationship with him. We must love him with all our heart and soul, we must eagerly listen to his word of instruction and obey him, and trust him implicitly. Those who want the will of God to be done in their lives, and do what God asks them to do are his kinsmen.
“While he yet talked to the people, behold, his mother and his brethren stood without, desiring to speak with him. Then one said unto him, behold, thy mother and thy brethren stand without, desiring to speak with thee. But he answered and said unto him that told him, who is my mother? And who are my brethren? And he stretched forth his hand toward his disciples, and said, behold my mother and my brethren! For whosoever shall do the will of my Father which is in heaven, the same is my brother, and sister, and mother.” Matthew 12: 46-50.
