"Whosoever does the will of my Father is my brother, my sister and my mother.” Being born again is a process. There is conception (a seed is planted), then, gestation and finally birth.
Strive to be a vessel for duplication of Christ. This mystery has been hidden since the foundation of the world. How far along are you in the process? Look at your works. Works are the measure of our faith. What we believe, we do.
"Hear and Do" equals building your house on the rock. It always comes back to faith and works. Think Red Ink!
Ch. 28: JESUS’ MOTHER AND BROTHERS COME TO SEE HIM
WHILE JESUS was talking to the people, his mother and brothers came to the house but were unable to enter because of the large crowds which thronged about it.
A messenger came to Jesus, saying:
“Behold, thy mother and thy brethren stand without, desiring to speak with thee.”
But Jesus replied to the messenger:
“Who is my mother? And who are my brethren?”
Then Jesus stretched his hand in the direction of his disciples and said:
“Behold my mother and my brethren!
For whosoever shall do the will of my Father which is in Heaven, the same is my brother, and sister, and mother.”
If you were family, you would hear and do; Hear the word of God is my mother - womb - a place to develop (pregnancy), seed of Christ, Abraham, Abraham's seed, not all who say, "Lord, Lord…" works are required; seed remains -does not sin, born again; do the right thing every time; daily life is what we are judged on;
born-again, salvation, seed of Christ, miscarriage, environment not hostile,
