About My Father’s Business

About My Father’s Business

Luke 2:49 “Why were you searching for me? He asked. Didn’t you know I had to be in my Father’s house?”

Friends, there’s an account in the book of Luke about when Jesus and his parents went to Jerusalem for a feast. The bible says that at a point Joseph and Mary couldn’t find Jesus but finally found him in the temple. When they tried to scold him he told them to their astonishment that he was about his Father’s business.

As joint heirs with Christ, there is need for us to be kingdom-minded. The bible tells us to set our affections on heavenly things. Matthew 6:19-20 “Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and vermin destroy, and where thieves break in and steal. But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor vermin will destroy, and where thieves do not break through in and steal”

It is the things we do in God’s kingdom that REALLY matters. “Seek ye first the kingdom of God and its righteousness and all other things will be added unto you” Soul-winning is the heartbeat of God. Jesus said “feed my sheep”.

On this glorious day that the Lord has made, ask yourselves the following question today:
AM I A BUSY-BODY IN OTHER PEOPLE’S MATTER OR AM I ABOUT MY FATHER’S BUSINESS?
God knows exactly where the shoe pinches. As you take care of God’s business, he’ll take care of yours!

I pray in the mighty name of Jesus that God will perfect ALL that concerns you. Be blessed in Jesus’ mighty name!

Have a glorious week!

WHEN WILL YOU REPENT?

At the very last moment the thief that was beside Jesus cried out to Him in repentance. He humbled himself and acknowledged his guilt in sheer contrast to Jesus’ innocence. He pleaded to be part of Jesus’ Kingdom and was granted a spot in paradise with Jesus!

Luke 23:42-43; Then he said, “Jesus, remember me when you come into your kingdom. Jesus answered him, “Truly I tell you, today you will be with me in paradise.” It just shows you that it is never too late to repent. The bible says that all who come to Jesus, he will in no wise cast out (John 6:37).

God says in 2 Chronicles that “If my people, who are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.”

I receive for you from God’s throne of grace a repentant heart in the mighty name of Jesus.

The prayer this thief prayed beside Jesus made him to make heaven! Brethren, contrary to the lie of the devil, it is NEVER too late to repent. The road to hell fire is very wide while the road to eternal life is straight and narrow. We all need the special grace of God to stay on the straight and narrow.

You may currently be as sheep going astray; NOW is the time to return to the Shepherd and Bishop of your soul (1 Peter 2:25). Now is the time to return to your first love. I hope and pray that like Paul, you will press on toward the mark of a high calling of God in Christ Jesus (Phil. 3:14).

Prayer: Lord anything that stands in the way of my salvation, take it out of my life. Make my path clear and my eyes seeing and looking to Your glorious inheritance.
