21 And when his friends
21 And when his family heard it, they went out to seize him, for they were saying, "He is out of his mind."
21 His friends heard what was going on and went to rescue him, by force if necessary. They suspected he was getting carried away with himself.
21 But when His own people heard about this, they went out to lay hold of Him, for they said, "He is out of His mind."

Matthew Henry's Commentary on Mark 3:21
Commentary on Mark 3:13-21
(Read Mark 3:13-21)
Christ calls whom he will; for his grace is his own. He had called the apostles to separate themselves from the crowd, and they came unto him. He now gave them power to heal sicknesses, and to cast out devils. May the Lord send forth more and more of those who have been with him, and have learned of him to preach his gospel, to be instruments in his blessed work. Those whose hearts are enlarged in the work of God, can easily bear with what is inconvenient to themselves, and will rather lose a meal than an opportunity of doing good. Those who go on with zeal in the work of God, must expect hinderances, both from the hatred of enemies, and mistaken affections of friends, and need to guard against both.
