Ladies and Gentlemen, we must BE about our Heavenly Fathers’ Business!

His parents went to Jerusalem every year at the Feast of the Passover. And when He was twelve years old, they went up to Jerusalem according to the custom of the feast.

When they had finished the days, as they returned, the Boy Jesus lingered behind in Jerusalem. And Joseph and His mother did not know it; but supposing Him to have been in the company, they went a day’s journey, and sought Him among their relatives and acquaintances. So, when they did not find Him, they returned to Jerusalem, seeking Him.

Now so it was that after three days they found Him in the temple, sitting in the midst of the teachers, both listening to them and asking them questions. And all who heard Him were astonished at His understanding and answers.

So when they (the parents) saw Him (Jesus), they were amazed; and His mother said to Him, “Son, why have You done this to us? Look, Your father and I have sought You anxiously.”  And He said to them,

Why did you seek Me? Did you not know that I must be about My Father’s Business?

But they did not understand the statement which He spoke to them. Then He went down with them and came to Nazareth, and was subject to them, but His mother kept all these things in her heart. And Jesus increased in Wisdom and Stature, and in Favor (abundant Grace) with God and men.

Luke 2:41-52


Dear ones, our LORD JESUS knew the Purpose for which He was born and came into this world to minister to all of us as co-heirs of Salvation. Each of us is piece of the puzzle we call LIFE!  We are interconnected and we each fill a part of the tapestry. Those we love surrounding us are also a larger part of the picture that God has created for us.  We must OBEY the Voice of the LORD in everything we say and do.

When God calls you to something, He is NOT always calling you to succeed, He is calling you to obey!  The success of the calling is up to Him. However, the obedience is up to you! – David Wilkerson

Holy Spirit of the Living LORD, we PRAY in agreement with Your Word in 1Samuel 15:22

What is more pleasing to the LORD: your burnt offerings and sacrifices or your obedience to His Voice? 

Listen! Obedience is much better than any sacrifice, and submission is better than offering the fat of rams. Rebellion is as sinful as witchcraft, and stubbornness as bad as worshiping idols. So, because you have rejected the command of the LORD, He has rejected you as king over Israel.

LORD JESUS, speak to my heart and give me Your Wisdom and Your Understanding in my mind to be instantly obedient to Your every Word!

This we ask of The Father, believing in The Son, by the Power of The Holy Spirit – ONE GOD Now and forevermore!

Trust and Obey, for there is no other way, to be happy in Jesus, than to Trust and Obey!


Amen and Amen!
