Answering them, He said, “Who are My mother and My brothers?” Mark 3:33
One day while Jesus was teaching, somebody told him his family has come to see him. Jesus answering rhetorically , asked “Who are my mother and brothers? What was Jesus saying here? Did he really forget who his family was? Of course not, Jesus was answering rhetorically to teach everyone a valuable lesson about their relationship with God.
Typically we are related to our family by blood (birth) or adoption. However the New Covenant which Jesus established on the cross, we will become Children of God by the blood of Christ. No longer will we be strangers or aliens to God, but we will be in his Covenant as his Children
“For whoever does the will of God, he is My brother and sister and mother.” Mark 3:35
Whoever is in the New Covenant are Children of God. How do you become a part of the New Covenant? By Repenting of your sins, and accepting Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior. Sin is what separates us from God, the blood Jesus shed on the cross is your atonement to bring you back to the Covenant of God
For ye are all the children of God by faith in Christ Jesus. Galatians 3:26
By your Faith in Jesus Christ, you are a Child of God. This was the point Jesus was trying to establish. We are not Brothers and Sisters just physically but now we are Spiritual Brothers and Sisters through Christ.
We were not meant to live alone, be united in the Body of Christ by his blood Amen!
