Jesus had brothers and maybe even sisters. But his real family is bigger than you can imagine.
Jesus had parents, brothers and maybe even sisters. His family life was probably a lot like ours. He had chores, was expected to all of his dinner and make his bed. But, as Jesus grew up and started his ministry, he talked about his family in a different way. In fact, there is a story in the Bible when Jesus is teaching to a crowd and his Mom and brothers showed up and asked to talk to him. Jesus’ response might surprise you. Instead of saying, “Great! I’ll be right there.” Jesus made a point to say that anyone who believed in him was a brother or sister. Now, I’m sure that was confusing to the crowd and maybe even to his family but Jesus was making a point. Jesus came to save us all from sin and death. So, Jesus was more interested in growing his family rather than just limiting it to the people born to his parents. That’s good news for us! We can be a part of God’s family, too. All we have to do is put our trust in Jesus and we’re in!
