OUR THEME FOR 2019
(Part 18)

FAMILIES ON MISSION – 3


January 26, 2019
Today’s gospel: Mark 3:20-21


We are families on mission. Just like our Lord Jesus.

After Jesus had done ministry, “he came home.” (v.20a). His home was his base. This too is the case with us. We are blessed with family. We always come home, to be refreshed, before going on our next mission.

Even when at home, Jesus was absorbed in ministry. “Again the crowd gathered, making it impossible for them even to eat.” (v.20b). There was no dichotomy between his home life and his mission. His priority was clear, even as it meant having no time to eat. This is the way it should be with us. We do not forget about mission when we are at home. We are always concerned about our mission wherever we are, even at home, as we pray for the mission, as we think about the mission, as we build up our mission base, as we teach our children about God’s work, as we open up our homes to those we serve.

His attitude of prioritizing mission did not go well with his relatives. “When his relatives heard of this they set out to seize him, for they said, ‘He is out of his mind.’” (v.21). This can be the case with us. Some of our relatives cannot understand our commitment to Christ and his mission. When we forgo food, career or even time with the family, people may think we are crazy. Our way is not the way of the world. Our priority is not self nor even family, but always Christ. We are fools for Christ.

Jesus has shown us the way. We are families on mission.
