Our DAILY GOSPEL DEVOTIONAL is the story of Jesus from Incarnation to Ascension. This is a chronology and harmony of the gospel accounts in which the ongoing narrative and doctrinal context are carefully considered. In one year we reflect on every passage of every gospel.
May God bless you as we follow the disciples on the journey through the earthly life of Jesus Christ.

The favor of faith

Luke 2:39-40…

The seed of the Savior must be nurtured according to obedience. As we travel to and fro, if we do what we know we should do, what we need to know about what is next will begin to take care of itself. We will walk right into it, with wisdom.

The walk of faith means that we have the faith to walk. It isn’t waiting for some spiritual high. These things may happen from time to time, but even in the extraordinary events of the coming and living of our Lord, the people involved were still normal people living normal lives. The three year mission was thirty years later.

Yes, the providence of God has changed the scope of our course, and our answered prayer brings new promise and new dreams. But remember, this new hope brings new understanding to our way of doing things, and we are not rescued from the mundane, we are transformed in it. Even the King of the Universe, who now resides in you, even Jesus took on the role of the regular. That is part of what the Incarnation is all about, to transform human clay. God is a potter, after all (Isaiah 64:8).

The seed will sprout and start to take on more and more room in your existence, as long as you stay obedient to the vision. You will be full of wisdom, and you will be found in favor. The mission of the Father is to see to it that the Son is blossoming out from your soul into all of your life. Just do what you know to do, and the fruit of the Spirit, the fruit of faith, will be produced. Christ is called the Branch, after all (Jeremiah 23:5-6).
