The Seven Statements of Christ - part 3

The Third Statement Christ made was one of INTEREST.

When Jesus saw his mother there, and the disciple whom he loved standing nearby, he said to his mother, "Dear woman, here is your son," 27and to the disciple, "Here is your mother." From that time on, this disciple took her into his home. John 19:26-27

Interest can be defined as a concern for a cause or responsibility. When Jesus spoke these words to John, he was showing interest in his mother and her well being. He did not neglect the responsibility of taking care of his family and He wants us to do the same. He also shows interest by caring for us and in being involved in every detail of our lives.

A good example of responsibility, and in spite of his condition. He is amazing!
