Are you…

16 “No one lights a lamp and then covers it with a bowl or puts it under a bed. Instead, they put it on top of a lampstand so that those who enter can see the light. 17 Nothing is hidden that won’t be exposed. Nor is anything concealed that won’t be made known and brought to the light. 18 Therefore, listen carefully. Those who have will receive more, but as for those who don’t have, even what they seem to have will be taken away from them.” 19 Jesus’ mother and brothers came to him but were unable to reach 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 listen to God’s word and do it.” (Luke 8:16-21, CEB)

Whoever listens to God’s word and does it, they are my mother and brother, father and sister.

Do you listen to God’s word? Not just the written word but the word of God spoken in and through your life every day. We need to listen to God and follow where God leads us. This is what being a child of God, someone named and claimed by God does. Not because of what they gain from it, but because they are already saved and moved because of that love to do good for others.

So are you a brother/sister/mother/father/sibling of Christ? Do you listen to God?

Go into the world loving as God loves you.

Loving People. Loving God.
