I heard something once that I’ve carried with me since. Basically, it states that Jesus’ first recorded words were “I must be about my Father’s business” and His last words on the cross were “It is finished.”
In between those two statements Jesus had the most single-minded vision and purpose of anyone who has lived or ever will live on this planet.
His purpose was to say and do exactly what the Father wanted to say and do. His purpose from a cradle in Bethlehem was a cross in Jerusalem.
I’m thankful that Jesus was 100% about His Father’s business because that business included the likes of me and you.
That business included seeking and saving the lost.
That business was inviting all who are weary and burdened to find rest for their souls.
That business was God sending His one and only Son that if anyone believes in Him, they will not perish or be lost forever but have eternal and abundant life to the fullest.
