GOD’S TRUE FAMILY

April 7

Jesus had just got through teaching on the soils and the seeds when this scene happens in Luke 8:19-21. This parable in Luke 8 shows you that not all people who go to church or follow Jesus are the real thing.  The parable of the four soils or seeds makes this very clear.  This is not four different kinds of Christians in this parable; it is one real Christian who bears fruit and three who never become Christians.  So, Jesus speaks here of listening carefully.  He says that those who because of not believing will have what truth they seem to have taken from them, but more truth would be given to those believing what He had already told them.  Jesus says when they tell Him that His mother and brothers are outside wanting to see Him that only the true believers are His family, not those who say and do not do.  Which soil are you?  Are you a true believer?

Then His mother and brothers came to Him, and could not approach Him because of the crowd. 20 And it was told Him by some, who said, “Your mother and Your brothers are standing outside, desiring to see You. “But Jesus answered and said to them, “My mother and My brothers are these who hear the Word of God and do it.” (Luke 8:19-21)
