Children's Devotional on growing in the likeness of Christ
And Jesus matured, growing up in both body and
spirit, blessed by both God and people. (V: 52)
Jesus was growing in God. Even at the age of 12,
He was beyond His years. They were all amazed
and marvelled at Jesus' understanding of the
things of God.
By His reply in V: 49, He already knew who His
Father was, though Mary & Joseph did not
understand what He meant about being in
His Father's House and tending to His
We too need to be attending to our Father God's
business in order to really grow into Jesus'
likeness. As we keep in God's word and prayer,
going to church & Sunday school, we grow in God.
We have a daily relationship with God, just like
we do with our Parents, sisters/brothers, or
friends. We cannot get to know family or friends
if we don't spend time with them - listening to
them. It is the same with God. We need to spend
time with Him to get to know Him – and by getting
to know God, we grow closer to Him and grow
as a Christian.
So, why not today, spend time with your best friend – Jesus!
The righteous will flourish like a palm tree,
they will grow like a cedar of Lebanon; planted
in the house of the Lord, they will flourish in
the courts of our God. They will still bear fruit
in old age, they will stay fresh and green. - Psalm 92: 12-14 (NIV)
I pray you'll help me grow each day
In your likeness more and more,
For when I spend more time with you,
I'll become like you, my Lord.
