Mark 3 (9)

Sometimes Jesus’ words surprise me! In our Bible Reading today, Jesus said that His true family are those people who do the things God wants.
There are many people today who call themselves Christians. But they think they are Christians because they say the right words or go to the right church or wear the right kinds of Christian clothing. People are true Christians if they do the things that God wants.
How can we know what God wants us to do? We can read the Bible and see what Jesus did. And we can read the letters that Paul wrote. In these letters he encouraged Christians to do what God wanted them to do.
You may believe in Jesus. But that is not enough. James 2:19 reminds us, “You believe there is one God. Good! But the demons believe, too! And they shake with fear.”
God wants us to do more than just believe in Him. He wants us to follow the example of Jesus when He served and loved other people.
