• We Are Family (Matthew 12:46-50)

    A Few Points of Interest:

    1. Jesus had brothers and sisters. (v46)
    2. Spiritual family is more important than physical family to Jesus. (v48,50)
    3. Obedience is the primary requirement Jesus gives for belonging. (v50)
    4. Jesus doesn’t seek to dishonor earthly family, but to give God priority.

    Family Privileges

    Acceptance—No matter who you are or where you’ve been.
    “But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.” (Romans 5.8)

  • Family Values Revisited

    Cutting Through Steel; Cutting Through Apron Strings
    Elevating Family Values to Dangerous Heights

    We are prone to put family first; we are supposed to put God First.

    We Think Jesus Came Only to Bring Peace...

    ...But He says he came to bring a sword. What can this mean? Simply this: the existence of evil—even in families—necessitates conflict. Event the best family is broken beyond our ability to repair. The politics of the family must take a back seat to the calling of the kingdom. We must be careful not to romanticize the memory of our family members.
