Scripture of the Day - June 23, 2012

Luke 8:21  And he answered and said unto them, My mother and my brethren are these which hear the word of God, and do it.

Some people imagine that Mary had special privileges and held a special rank because she was the mother of Jesus, but while she was certainly honoured to be humble and obedient enough to bring forth that perfect human and nurture him into manhood that was as far as it went. In this scene His mother and brothers couldn't get near Him because of all the people so a certain person let Jesus know that they wanted to see Him...perhaps thinking they deserved special privileges. Jesus Himself is letting us know that we are all equal in God's eyes. None is more important or holds a higher rank than others. What gains you entry into the family of God is faith in and obedience to Jesus. Hear the Word and Do the Word!
