Shalom, let’s learn the words of life.
Most of us think the Lord Jesus was born with a perfect understanding of everything, or a knowledge of all things, No he was born and became as the way we are, with nothing known to him although he was a true God in the flesh.
It had to be that way, in order to fulfill God’s purpose, to be like Him in all things so that He might be an example for us to follow His way. So just by looking at the Life of the Lord Jesus we can learn things that even we ourselves can do.
Until the Lord reached the point of understanding many of God’s mysteries, it was not something he was born with, no, the Bible says.
Luke 2:52 “And Jesus increased in wisdom and stature, and in favor with God and man.”
Continuing in wisdom and stature, means to grow daily in the wisdom of knowing God, that is, from one level to another, one step at a time. God was looking for teachers to help him, And when he met them he was asking questions where he did not understand and giving his opinion where he was most understanding..
You can read this in…
Luke 3:46 “And it came to pass, that after three days they found him in the temple, sitting in the midst of the doctors, both hearing them, and asking them questions.
47 And all that heard him were astonished at his understanding and answers.
48 And when they saw him, they were amazed: and his mother said unto him, Son, why hast thou thus dealt with us? behold, thy father and I have sought thee sorrowing.
49 And he said unto them, How is it that ye sought me? wist ye not that I must be about my Father’s business?
50 And they understood not the saying which he spake unto them.
51 And he went down with them, and came to Nazareth, and was subject unto them: but his mother kept all these sayings in her heart.
52 And Jesus increased in wisdom and stature, and in favour with God and man.
Try to imagine, a 12-year old boy spends three days and nights, just sitting in church, studying the Bible, and that is his routine. How do you expect a young man like that to become an adult? Do you think he will become the same as others?
He just had to, he would be in the knowledge of God to know God faster, and so it was with the Lord, all things did not come to him suddenly in him, maybe he was born with it, so he didn’t need to add knowledge or learn no!.
Today, you will see a Christian doesn’t want to study the Bible, even when he goes to study he does not ask questions, his pastors, or his prophets, or his teachers, he is just listening and leaving, being told something even if it is strange to him, he will just accept it and say AMEN !
someone who is a Bible reader, he just has to come across a lot of incomprehensible things, and God has hidden them so deliberately, to instill in us a love of searching, and at the end of the day give him the answer. But if you just read the bible by having fun, or fulfilling a schedule, you realize that that is not God’s plan.
God wants us to study the bible not to read it as a newspaper, the Bible is a book of mysteries, there is no way a Christian can miss questions to ask God,that is not possible, it does not exist.
But Jesus was not ashamed to learn where He did not understand, and He used that opportunity well to follow His teachers of the law. The same to you if you want to grow in God’s wisdom and stature follow those who preceded you in faith such as your prophets, apostles, teachers, ask them questions about what you have learned from the Bible. And if there answers doesn’t satisfy you go to other pastors and ask them too,until the Holy Spirit reveal to you the true answer.
Although Jesus Christ was under his teachers, but at the end of the day he was the TEACHER TEACHER… He was a RABBI, He knew more secrets of the kingdom of heaven, than all the people who are being on earth, not only those who lived with him, but also those who preceded him.
Even if you are a person who is dissatisfied with the state of your understanding of God, and you start to learn, be sure that it will reach a time you will be a person of far-reaching levels, and God will reveal Himself to you in ways that you yourself will be amazed at.
Begin now, seeking your God, as earnestly as our Lord JESUS CHRIST.
God bless you.
