Gathering with Family

And a multitude was sitting around Jesus; and they said to Him, "Look, Your mother and Your brothers are outside seeking You." But Jesus answered them, saying, "Who is My mother, or My brothers?" And He looked around in a circle at those who sat about Him, and said, "Here are My mother and My brothers! For whoever does the will of God is My brother and My sister and mother." Mark 3:32-35

Last Sunday evening, as we were meeting for prayer, one of the men said, "I thank God that I was able to spend Thanksgiving with my family." After a pause, he continued, "God has given me a wonderful family in Christ, and I thank Him that I was able to spend time with all of you."

As several of us were comparing notes, we learned that various parts of our "family" met together Sunday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, and Saturday of last week. It seems that God is continuing to teach us what it means to "share in the life."

So continuing daily with one accord in the temple, and breaking bread from house to house, they ate their food with gladness and simplicity of heart, praising God and having favor with all the people. And the Lord added to the church daily those who were being saved. Acts 2:46-47
