WHOEVER DOES THE WILL OF GOD IS MY BROTHER AND SISTER

Christ today invites us to have a critical thought on relationships. Relationship maybe defined as the way in which two or more people are connected, or state of being connected.

It is by God’s design that we don’t leave alone. He gives us many opportunities for developing relationships with family, friends and everyone else that we came across with Jesus seem to be rude on his own relatives when they pressed to see him. His love and respect  for his mother and relatives was unquestionable.

He took it up to teach his disciples a spiritual lesson and truth about the kingdom of God. He went an extra mile to another higher reality of relationships namely, our connection with God and those who belong to God.

The essence of being a christian is certainly doing what God expects of us, mainly to follow his commandments, to love with affection, trust, loyalty, faithfulness and many other qualities that bind people together in mutual, love and unity.

Union of heart, mind, Spirit with himself, the very author and source of love. 1 John 4: 8, 16.

 

The lord Jesus offers each one of us a personal relationship with himself. Jesus is God’s love made visible in human flesh 1 John 4: 9-10. describing himself as the good shepherd who lays down his life for his sheep and shepherd who seeks out the sheep who have strayed and lost their way.

In conclusion the lord wants to transform all of our relationship to love as he loves. Jesus changes the order of relationships and shows that true kinship is not just a matter of flesh and blood. We pray that in all over relationships, our good Lord may give us genuine and constant love to make us appreciate and cherish each other.

Mary did the Fathers will. It was this in her that the Lord magnified, not merely that her flesh gave birth to flesh but because blessed are they who hear the word of God and keep it . Luke 11: 28
