Jesus’ Family

46 While Jesus was speaking to the crowds, his mother and brothers stood outside trying to speak with him. 47 Someone said to him, “Look, your mother and brothers are outside wanting to speak with you.” 48 Jesus replied, “Who is my mother? Who are my brothers?” 49 He stretched out his hand toward his disciples and said, “Look, here are my mother and my brothers. 50 Whoever does the will of my Father who is in heaven is my brother, sister, and mother.” (Matthew 12:46-50, CEB)

We are all a part of the family of God.

This reminds me of a song, Family by Todd Agnew. Here are the lyrics:

Who’s my brother in Nashville, Tennessee?
Who’s my sister in the village in Malawi?
Who’s my lover in Washington DC?
Who’s my neighbor, who’s my loved one, who’s my friend?

We are all family, we are all family
We are all family, we are all family

If we’re all under one Father that makes us all brothers
We are all family

Who’s my brother in a different kind of turf?
She’s my sister struggling with her work
She’s my mother, gave me all at birth
Who’s my neighbor, who’s my loved one, who’s my friend?

We are all family, we are all family
We are all family, we are all family

If we’re all under one Father that makes us all brothers
We are all family

Who’s my neighbor, who’s my loved one, who’s my friend?
Who’s my neighbor, who’s my loved one, who’s my friend?

We are all family, we are all family
We are all family, we are all family

You don’t have to look like me for us to be brotherly
And you don’t have to be like me for us to be family
You don’t have to think like me for us to speak intimately
Don’t have to agree with me for us to be family

You don’t have to live near me for us to be neighborly
You don’t have to dress like me for us to be family
You don’t have to speak like me to love each other, you see
You don’t have to be like me for us to be family, oh no

If we’re all under one Father that makes us all brothers

We are all a part of God’s family and siblings of Christ. We need to act like it and show the love God has given us to the world.

And here is a video of Family:
