Full Message:


Main Passage: Luke 2:40-5

“Jesus has a zealous love for God’s Word. As a young boy visiting the temple, Jesus asked questions and gave answers to the religious leaders. In response to His parents, who misunderstood Him, Jesus declared that He was involved in His Father’s work. Here we see Jesus as a fully human boy yet totally devoted to His Father and submissive to His earthly parents. As we join Jesus in being about His Father’s work, we too are called to grow in wisdom and obedience as we showcase His glory.” – The Gospel Project

Theological Theme:

As a boy, Jesus demonstrated His commitment to God- Father, Son and Spirit’s law and to the mission His Father gave Him.

Christ Connection:

As Jesus grew, He increased in wisdom and stature and in favor with God and with people. His life prepared Him step by step to implement the eternal mission He was given by His Father—to die on the cross for our sins and rise again in victory.

Missional Application:

God, through His Holy Spirit, calls us to grow in wisdom and obedience as we join Jesus in being about the Father’s work.

“God’s Word to us in the person of Jesus Christ is a reference point, a source of equilibrium, a message of grace, the promise of forgiveness and healing that stands forever, in spite of our failures and sin and brokenness.”  –Marva Dawn

“When we walk with the Lord In the light of His Word, What a glory He sheds on our way! Let us do His good will; He abides with us still, And with all who will trust and obey. Not a burden we bear, Not a sorrow we share, But our toil He doth richly repay; Not a grief or a loss, Not a frown or a cross But is blest if we trust and obey.
Then in fellowship sweet We will sit at His feet, Or we’ll walk by His side in the way; What He says we will do, Where He sends we will go; Never fear, only trust and obey. Trust and obey, For there’s no other way To be happy in Jesus, But to trust and obey.
–John H. Sammis
