The Nations

MLI_GlobeJesus came for people from every tribe, nation and peoples. Some of His last words to the Disciples reflect this heart and provided clear focus for their actions.

Jesus said, “… that repentance for the forgiveness of sins should be proclaimed in his name to all nations, beginning from Jerusalem.” (Luke 24:47)

Take a moment to ask Abba how He wants you to focus some of your actions toward peoples of the nations.

God Has Spoken

“Long ago, at many times and in many ways, God spoke to our fathers by the prophets, but in these last days he has spoken to us by his Son, whom he appointed the heir of all things, through whom also he created the world. He is the radiance of the glory of God and the exact imprint of his nature, and he upholds the universe by the word of his power. After making purification for sins, he sat down at the right hand of the Majesty on high…” (Heb. 1:1-3).

Jesus is the One we are to look at and model ourselves after. He is the One who shows us how to live and minister and walk with God. He is the One who created the world and holds all things together. He is the One who is at the right hand of the Majesty on high.

Jesus is the One.

Take a moment to reflect on these verses and offer praise and thanksgiving to the Father. Take a moment to reflect on the One.

Jesus’ Early Years

I marvel at how the Lord works.

The incarnate Son, the second person of the Trinity, Jesus, became one of us, born to a poor couple, in a humble stable. Then moved to a nowhere place in Galilee where he grew up as a carpenter’s son.

When he was twelve, his parents took him to Jerusalem at Passover, as they did every year. He went to the temple sitting among the teachers, listening and asking questions. “All who heard him were amazed at his understanding and answers.” (Lk. 2:47).

Luke summarizes Jesus’ early years this way, “And Jesus increased in wisdom and in stature and in favor with God and man.” (Lk. 2:52).

Take a moment to reflect on Jesus’ early years. What comes to your mind? How does Jesus’ humble beginnings impact you? Take a moment to thank Abba for sending Jesus.
