Steadfast in the Faithful God



Growing in wisdom.  James challenged his readers and us to call out to God for wisdom right after telling them to rejoice in tribulation for the endurance it produces in the believer’s life.  No coincidence.  James had seen in the life of Jesus that the fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom.  And wisdom is to trust God even when the challenges of our life don’t make sense.  And Christ sustains us when we seek to trust Him above trusting our reasoning.

Jesus Growing Up



We don’t know many details, and it staggers the imagination.  Jesus was a baby, a toddler, a child, an adolescent, and young adult all before He was publicly revealed again to be the Messiah on the banks of the Jordan River.  And that growing up was vital part of being our Savior, fulfilling righteousness for us leading up to be our sinless Sacrifice.  But this little glimpse into His boyhood has much to teach us.

Jesus grew up.  We should continue to grow up as well.

Luke 2:39-52
