When Jesus was twelve years old He went with His parents to Jerusalem. After the celebrations were over the many families who had been in Jerusalem worshipping travelled back home together. It was only later that they discovered Jesus was not with them.
Often, as believers, we travel through our daily lives and don’t realize that we have misplaced Jesus. Often we run on our own agenda and only when things don’t go the way we want them to do we realize that we are ‘missing Jesus.’ It seems at times that we think we are smart enough or strong enough to handle life on our own. Then when we call out to Him in our crisis only then do we realize that we are ‘missing Jesus.’
This teaching will be looking at this bible story found in Luke’s gospel (Luke 2:41-52) as we examine our own lives to see where we have wandered away from Jesus and so, in some ways, we are ‘missing Jesus’ in our daily walk. And, we will also look at why this seems to happen when we truly are in love with Him and have committed our lives to Him.
