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!
