The scripture for today, March 31 (3/31), is Mark 3:31ff as found in the New Testament of the Bible:
“Then Jesus’ mother and brothers arrived. Standing outside, they sent someone in to call him. A crowd was sitting around him and they told him, ‘Your mother and brothers are outside looking for you.’ ‘Who are my mother and my brothers?’ he asked. Then he looked at those seated in a circle around him and said, ‘Here are my mother and my brothers! Whoever does God’s will is my brother and sister and mother.’ “
Do you need a mediator between Jesus and yourself? Jesus said his followers are his brothers, sisters, and mother. You do not need anyone to intercede and beg Jesus to give you special attention (I Timothy 2:5). He already gives us special attention. After all, we are his family.
Oh, how comforting. No one has a perfect family here on earth. You love your family anyway. It is the same with Jesus’ family ~ the church. We are not perfect. But we forgive each other just as Jesus forgives us. Do not refuse to be with Jesus’ family because of someone’s imperfections of offenses. Ephesians 5:23 and elsewhere say Jesus is the head and we are his body. To break away from Jesus’ body is to break away from Jesus ~ our Brother, our Savior, the Lover of Your Soul.
No matter how dangerous the world was in Jesus’ time, JOSEPH: THE OTHER FATHER protected his step-son.
