But when the Jewish Festival of Tabernacles was near, Jesus’ brothers said to him, “Leave Galilee and go to Judea, so that your disciples there may see the works you do. No one who wants to become a public figure acts in secret. Since you are doing these things, show yourself to the world.” For even his own brothers did not believe in him.
~ John 7:3-5
They all joined together constantly in prayer, along with the women and Mary the mother of Jesus, and with his brothers.
~ Acts 1:14
If you have family members who don’t know the Lord, I’d like to encourage you today.
Jesus Himself . . . the greatest Evangelist, the Witness of all witnesses, and the Way, the Truth, and the Life incarnate, lived with and before His brothers for many years.
Yet during His amazing ministry, “His brothers did not believe in Him” (John 7:5).
However, in time, they came to believe on Him and follow Him.
For after His crucifixion, Luke tells us that there was a group of 120 who prayed together constantly. Among them were “His brothers.”
So remember this the next time you get discouraged because your loved ones aren’t following the Lord . . . yet.
