WE ARE FAMILY: BIBLICALLY
by Pastor Mike Fortune

- We are Jesus' flesh and blood (Luke 8:20; Psalm 103:17)
- We love until death do us part (Luke 8:21; John 13:15)
- Jesus isn't embarrassed by us (Luke 8:22; Hebrews 2:11) Luke 8:19-21
19 Then Jesus' mother and brothers came to see him, but they couldn't get to him because of the crowd. 20 Someone told Jesus, "Your mother and your brothers are outside, and they want to see you." 21 Jesus replied, "My mother and my brothers are all those who hear God's word and obey it."
Psalm 103:17 (Scripture Reading)
17 But the love of the LORD remains forever with those who fear him. His salvation extends to the children's children.
15 I have given you an example to follow. Do as I have done to you.
11 So now Jesus and the ones he makes holy have the same Father. That is why Jesus is not ashamed to call them his brothers and sisters
