The Sword of Jesus

Matt 10:34 Think not that I am come to send peace on earth: I came not to send peace, but a sword. 35 For I am come to set a man at variance against his father, and the daughter against her mother, and the daughter in law against her mother in law.
The peace of the blood family is not the ultimate goal, at least not at the expense of peace with Christ. As I mentioned before, when blood lines and water lines are in line, then God be praised. But if they are out of line, then your loyalties should lie with God’s people. In that sense, serving Christ can cause division in a blood family while maintaining unity in Christ’s family. Jesus clearly teaches that it is more vital to have peace in Jesus than peace in the Hurts, or Phillipses, or Smiths or Jones.
