Our Father’s Business
by Randy Chambers, 2015-07-19
Luke 2:49, NKJV: And He said to them, “Why did you seek Me?
Did you not know that I must be about My Father’s business?”
My new life in Christ had generated such passion that I desired nothing but to
be exactly what God wanted. As I expressed that sentiment to my Grandfather, he
asked me, “Well, what about what you want?” I didn’t expect that question, yet I
replied, “I want whatever God wants.” I wish I could say I have been steadfast
in that desire, but I have had my setbacks. Yet, the desire remains—the desire
to be about our Father’s business. Jesus’ entire life was spent being about His
Father’s business. If our lives were to be about God, and His business, what
might that look like? Wouldn’t it resemble the life of Jesus to a strong degree?
So, what percentage of our lives is about ourselves, and what percentage is
about Jesus? If we call ourselves Christians, shouldn’t it be that our lives be
all about our Father’s business?
