We had our first in-person worship with some new friends at Granite Peaks Church in Denver. It was a delight to actually expand our notion of family as Jesus invites us to do in Mark 3:28-35. Pastor Dave reminded us that alligators grow to size of the container they are kept in. Jesus and the Holy Spirit open our minds to grow our sense of family. If you missed being with us, you can watch here and see photos here.
Reflect on the message this week in your quiet times and in conversations.
- How do you define family? Where did you learn that?
- How does Jesus define family? How does it compare with your definition?
- Where is your box too small to hold God and the Kingdom? Where do you need to push down the walls of your box?
- When do you need Jesus to remind you that you are a beloved child of God? How might you hear these precious words?
