Family Betrayal

Mark 3:21 When His family heard this, they set out to restrain Him, because they said, “He’s out of His mind.”

I am having a hard time understanding why Mary would do this to her Son? She knew how she conceived Him and knew who He was? Why would she say He is "out of his mind"?

Families, the ones in your life you are suppose to be able to rely on. The ones who are suppose to be the most encouraging,and have the most faith in you are the ones that cause you greatest disappointment.

I wonder how Jesus felt knowing this how His family felt and thought of Him? Betrayed, as we do or would?

How many of you have felt that same kind betrayal from your family?

What was Jesus' answer to that betrayal?

Mark 3:33-35
33 He replied to them, “Who are My mother and My brothers?” 34 And looking about at those who were sitting in a circle around Him, He said, “Here are My mother and My brothers! 35 Whoever does the will of God is My brother and sister and mother.”

It is hard for us to understand why our family would not love us unconditionally, as Christ would. It is hard to understand why they wouldnot be encouraging. Sometimes the pain is to great to bare. The wonderful thing about Christ is He does understand and has walked the path before us and has endured to show us just how to endure.

Here He reminds us that is our family will not be encouraging, loving, you find love and encouragement through the body of Christ.

Be encourage Saints and Sisters knowing our Savior walks before us

    Right now we're going through some family issues, and it has been pretty difficult. Christ says that he will bring division- division between fathers and sons, mothers and daughters. This is especially true when one is lost and the other is saved. It's heart breaking, but Christ knows how we feel!

  2. Amen Angie. First I want to thank you for stopping by and saying hello. Congrats on your 7th! The Lord's blessings are so sweet but nothing is sweeter or better than His love. I am grateful that I have come to know and love my Savior or else rejection, betrayal and bitter spoken words would be a lot harder to bear. But He gives us the strength and the wisdom to deal with these situations. If everyone loved us and treated us kindly we wouldn't run to our Lord for comfort, we won't need His loving embrace and sweet words. It is through these times that we can show others the Love of Christ and presevere through our faith.

    Peace of the Lord,
