What If Your Child was Christ?

I imagine being a parent to the newborn baby Jesus overwhelming!  But to be the mother or father of a 12 year old God and Savior, who’s nearing adulthood… think about it, Mary had Jesus when she was 13-14, remember?  It was becoming clear to Mary and Joseph that He was not just their baby anymore.

I imagine Mary and Joseph could even feel sad to find their son in the temple, to AGAIN be reminded He isn’t just their Son and that they would have to share Him with the world soon.  As the Angel told Mary (“You will conceive and give birth to a son, and you are to call him Jesus. 

He will be great and will be called the Son of the Most High. ” Luke 1:31-)  Jesus even reminded them that He is more than just their child by saying  “Didn’t you know I had to be in my Father’s house?”
But there is a great comfort, for Mary and Joseph, they knew their Son was the Savior promised.  There was no question.  If you know your Father and Savior, you too can find comfort in your heavenly Father’s house.  Do you seek your Father’s house, our home of worship?  Devouring every word He shares?  Let us continue to seek obedience to our Lord and take comfort in God’s grace and mercy!
