VERSE: “ Whoever does God’s will is my brother and sister and mother.” - Mark 3:35.
In the book of Mark, chapter 3, Jesus called us His “brother.” But the actual word used in the Greek for brother is “Adelphos,” which comes from a Greek root word “Delphos,” or “womb.”
Why Does Jesus Call Us Adelphos?
A brother is someone who is born of the same womb as you. So if Messiah is our brother, what does it mean? There are two mysteries here.
The first mystery is about Messiah’s incarnation. He was born into this world in flesh and blood from the same place all people come from – their mother’s womb.
The second mystery is that we now have the chance to be born of heaven’s womb as Messiah also was – to be born of the Spirit in the second birth. In fact, the two mysteries are joined.
Our Messiah was born of an earthly womb that we might be born of heaven. Or, in other words, Messiah is your adelphos, in that He so intimately joined every part of His life to your life, that you, now, would make it your aim to so intimately join every part of your life to Him – your adelphos.
GOD BLESS YOU.
