Scripture; Luke chapter 2: 41-52
Text: Take a look at your progress with God and man
**Jesus earthly parents made their annual trip to Jerusalem to attend the feast of the passover.
On their way back home they noticed that Jesus was not with them.When they could not find their twelve-year old son among the travelers they returned to Jerusalem and found him in the temple talking with the teachers. These type of encounters with teachers and elders enabled Jesus to increase in wisdom and stature, and in favor with God and man.
We see that Jesus was gathering knowledge that would enable him in later life to deal with all kind of situations,as he went forth carrying out the the mandate of God.
You will note that Jesus stayed focus on pleasing God. His actions pleased some men but not all. That is alright. Work to please God and man can fall in line. Some will and some won't. That is okay as long as you are doing what is right. Man will double cross you, so strive to please God and he will be with you through troubling and good times.
So, in conclusion, examine how you are progressing with God and man. But be focused on pleasing God.
That is the gist of the sermon today today. I encourage you to read Luke Chapter 2 in its entirety. It is on your phone. Just google the book of Luke and go to chapter 2.
** The sermon was slightly augmented for presentation and enhancement purposes.
You will note that Jesus was talking with men whom he could learn from. He was not engaged in slander and gossip. What about you?
