Luke 8:19-21

19 Now Jesus’ mother and brothers came to see him, but they were not able to get near him because of the crowd. 20Someone told him, “Your mother and brothers are standing outside, wanting to see you.”

21 He replied, “My mother and brothers are those who hear God’s word and put it into practice.”

One response to “Luke 8:19-21

  1. What a nice way to be described by the Savior. He did not highlight their relationship to Him and His natural love for them, He described they way the Word impacted their lives. I think that another part of this passage is that Jesus was more concerned about ministering to those who were not yet changed by His words. He was not concerned about family not being able to get close because they were already changed and drawn.
