Jesus – In Family (The Local Church)

Sunday, May 19, 2024


  • A gathering of a local faith family. 
  • Location, place of meeting for Christians, a building.
  1. How is Kingdom family defined? 

As Jesus was speaking to the crowd, his mother and brothers stood outside, asking to speak to him. Someone told Jesus, “Your mother and your brothers are standing outside, and they want to speak to you.” Jesus asked, “Who is my mother? Who are my brothers?” Then he pointed to his disciples and said, “Look, these are my mother and brothers. Anyone who does the will of my Father in heaven is my brother and sister and mother! ‭‭Matthew‬ ‭12‬:‭46‬-‭50‬ ‭NLT‬‬

  1. Is family growth based on my obedience? 

Then Jesus said to His disciples, “If anyone wishes to follow Me [as My disciple], he must deny himself [set aside selfish interests], and take up his cross [expressing a willingness to endure whatever may come] and follow Me [believing in Me, conforming to My example in living and, if need be, suffering or perhaps dying because of faith in Me]. Matthew 16:24

  1. Am I on a mission with Jesus? 

Jesus came and told his disciples, “I have been given all authority in heaven and on earth. Therefore, go and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit. Teach these new disciples to obey all the commands I have given you. And be sure of this: I am with you always, even to the end of the age. ‭‭Matthew‬ ‭28‬:‭18‬-‭20‬ ‭NLT‬‬ 

  1. Am I a member, joined with Christ?

For I pass on to you what I received from the Lord himself. On the night when he was betrayed, the Lord Jesus took some bread and gave thanks to God for it. Then he broke it in pieces and said, “This is my body, which is given for you. Do this in remembrance of me.” In the same way, he took the cup of wine after supper, saying, “This cup is the new covenant between God and his people—an agreement confirmed with my blood. Do this in remembrance of me as often as you drink it.” For every time you eat this bread and drink this cup, you are announcing the Lord’s death until he comes again. ‭‭1 Corinthians‬ ‭11‬:‭23‬-‭26‬ ‭NLT‬‬
