(St. Luke 2:49 KJV) “And he said unto them, how is it that ye sought me? Wist ye not that I must be about my Father’s business?
We hear this term spoken a lot in the body of Christ and in fact, it is a term which the young child Jesus even referred to as He spoke to his mother. However, what does it mean to be about the Father’s business? Well the scripture tells us that in (Matt 4:23) “That Jesus went about all Galilee, teaching in their synagogues and preaching the gospel of the kingdom, and healing all manner of disease among the people.” Hence, if that was his business it should be our business if we call ourselves Christians. Our business plan should at least have some preaching, teaching and healing incorporated into it daily. If our Christian business has these three elements in it, it is a plan that will not fail. This business is not just for us to benefit from, even though we should be the first partaker in receiving the benefits of preaching, teaching and healing. But eventually, it should benefit those whom we come into contact with on a daily basis; whether it’s a family member, friend or associate we should all be about enlarging or expanding the Father’s business to the degree that we encourage someone else to share this good news of Jesus Christ. Additionally, this is a business model that will also bring us some success on earth as well, and every Christian wants success but every Christian don’t really want to pay the price for success. But those who are really about the Father’s business will realize success as he/she sees men and women being changed for the better all around them.
God Bless You
