Wouldn’t it be great to live in world where everyone was for you: spouses, family members, friends, acquaintances, colleagues, bosses, and political leaders.

Imagine a world where everyone is thriving, confident in who they are while working hard to love those around them.

We don’t live in that world now, but we will, it’s coming.

We have an enemy who darkens our world, intent on plundering hearts and destroying lives. Humanity gathers in tribes and families for protection against the darkness – not a perfect system, but much better than braving the darkness alone.

Enter Jesus and everything changes. His ability to love and care far exceeds anything any human system could ever provide.

Jesus took the idea of family to a whole new level. N. T. Wright called it an ‘alternative family’.

‘Then he looked at those seated in a circle around him and said, “here are my mother and my brothers! Whoever does God’s will is my brother and sister and mother.”’ (Mark 3:34-35)

Jesus reprioritised his relationship with his own biological family, to include his followers as part of one supernaturally, strong family that can stand against any darkness.

God is the father in this family.
