  1. Mark 3:31-35 Has an expanded version of “who are My family” (mother brother etc) in Mark’s version reference is made twice that He was in a house surrounded by people in a circle. The circle represents those hearing the KINGdom of heaven for the first time where all were beginners in CHRISTianity. He was making the satatement that there is the world family and KINGdom family. Obeying the word of God is the focus to be His KINGdom family. When we gather who do we listen to. First we have a social world family discussion, but do we then switch to honor the ONE in our midst when it comes time to speak. Are we honoring Holy Spirit’s desire to be heard to give our meeting direction in KINGdom purpose. We are all at a different level of understanding and one word is not needed by all. we each need to be encouraged and edified by each other as it is written.Are we listening to the Holy Spirit moving through each other to edify, encourage, and build each other up as only Holy Spirit knows what we each need to hear. If we are not quieting down to listen before we speak we will not discover the necessity of the interdependence required by knowing each other according to the spirit/Spirit moving and not according to the flesh. We must learn to listen with expectation to hear for another when we gather, this hearing for another tells us we can only be built up by each other flowing in Holy Spirit words. We expect to hear for another and expect to hear from another. Each one is built up and encouraged by another .
    Romans 5:5 the love of God has been poured into our hearts by Holy Spirit He has given to us. To flow in Holy Spirit is to flow in LOVE out of the abundance of the heart (Holy Spirit poured in) the mouth speaks. WE will flow in love for one another as we experience the fellowship of flow of Holy Spirit IN/THROUGH each other, The NEED for this FLOW creates interdependence in our “Body”. Love us first is this H.S.love and we love as the byproduct of the flow of love as we experience the living water as a fountain for each others.
