The Way of Spiritual Family

Text: Mark 3:7-35
Rev. John Downs

With echoes back to Mt. Sinai, in today’s text we see Jesus calling a new spiritual family, a new Israel based not on ethnicity but rather on the call of Christ to join a supernatural family comprised of people from every tribe and tongue. This family membership is founded on the forgiveness based in his redemption applied to us. The purpose of this spiritual family is to faithfully represent him in our lives.
