Christ the Creator

Read Luke 9:18-27. Why would Jesus have asked the disciples a question whose answer He already knew? What lesson was He seeking to teach them not only about Himself but about what it means to follow Him? Who do you say that I am? (Luke 9:20, NKJV). The question that Jesus asked 2,000 years ago … [Click to read more …]

About My Fathers Business

If Joseph and Mary had stayed their minds upon God by meditation and prayer, they would have realized the sacredness of their trust, and would not have lost sight of Jesus. By one day’s neglect they lost the Saviour; but it cost them three days of anxious search to find Him. So with us; by … [Click to read more …]
