Advance, idea of moving forward.
It's one thing to have existence it's another to advance. Not achieving anything if you're not advancing (idea of football gaining yards).
Are you advancing with God?
2 thing Jesus did to advance in God and mans favor.
1) Vision: What did Jesus see?
Luke 2:41- Passover: Thousands of lambs being slaughtered; blood running through trenches; Jesus is now at the age where he knows who he is-realized Joseph isn't his father, no life of a carpenter, but here to do his Fathers business who's blood will take the sin of the world, like a lamb to the slaughter. Can you imagine being 12 years old seeing all the lambs and knowing that will be you in a few years?
-What caused him to move forward and advance?
-We don't grow when things are easy, we grow when things are difficult, and we're held accountable.
-He died to show us the suffering we would go through, not just to save us from it. 1 Peter 2:21. "Leaving us an example..."
-We will have to suffer in order to advance. Not what is easy or convient.
-Romans 8:18-19. "Sufferings will be worth future glory" (Example: Could you not spend money for 7 days if you knew at the end of the year you would gets million dollar bonus?)
2) Surroundings: Where Did Jesus Go?
-In temple in midst of teachers asking questions (he was a boy trying to develop and learn scriptures); he was not always a scholarly teacher
-Probably Passover was the only time scholars spent time studying together after the Passover was over; depth was probably very grand for those who wanted to learn more
-1 Cor 3:16 Church(the people) is the temple today; Not forsaking assembly because we need each other in order to advance (Hebrews 10:24-25)
-Avoid evil companions (1Cor 15:33)
-Learn! Live by the word of God (Matt 4:4)
Who will you help advance forward?
Jesus saw lamb being sacrificed and thus when he advanced, sat with Gods people and fed on his word.
