Our Relationship with our Father.

In Matthew 12:46-50, Jesus was told that his mother Mary and his brothers were outside, wanting to talk to Him. What He said wasn’t a denial of His earthly family. What Jesus was saying to His disciples was how to enter into the kingdom of God. Jesus asked a question. Who are my mother and brothers? He pointed to His disciples and said, whosoever shall do the will of my Father which is in heaven, is my brother and sister and mother. Yes, Jesus had brothers and sisters. His sister’s name was Diane. We know that James the Lesser was also His brother. It is believed that Matthew is also His brother. These are the children of Mary and Joseph. But this narrative also says that being a blood relative doesn’t guarantee entrance into heaven. It is by faith, believing and trusting, that a person can enter into a relationship with Jesus. Remember Jesus is the son of God.
