More Than a Carpenter’s Son

Jesus was God upon the earth in the flesh, He looked no different than you and I, yet He was so much more than mere man. At a very young age Jesus was not as other children, as we read when His father and mother searched for Him, finding Him in the temple listening and asking questions. Even though Joseph and Mary were His parents He said “How is it that ye sought me? Wist ye not that I must be about my Father’s business?”

We clearly see here that Jesus mission upon the earth was not a life lived for Himself, but to fulfill the will of His Father!

He was so much more than a carpenter’s son and although His own rejected Him, His power remains in the earth to this day by the Holy Spirit He promised to send to all who would follow Him. ( Matthew 13:54-58 ). 54 And when He was come into His own country, He taught them in their synagogue, insomuch that they were astonished, and said, Whence hath this man this wisdom, and these mighty works? 55 Is not this the carpenter’s son? Is not His mother called Mary? And His brethren James, and Joses, an Simon, and Judas? 56 And His sisters, are they not all with us? Whence then hath this man all these things? 57 And they we offended in him. But Jesus said unto them, A prophet is not without honour, save in his own country, and in his own house. 58 And He did not many mighty works there because of their unbelief.

The Lord looks on the heart of man and not at the outward appearance. ( 1 Samuel 16:7 ).
