Jesus had to learn everything about God, Himself and His purpose. We know He spent time hearing and studying the Holy scrolls. With that foundation He engaged the practices of baptism, prayer and fasting. As He was filled and empowered by the Holy Spirit, He carried out the works God had prepared for him.
It is a blessed pursuit to engage the Word of God through teaching and abide in His Spirit through practices. In these pursuits, the Lord invites us to receive the fullness of all He has prepared for our lives in Christ. As we embody the abundance we were made for, the fruit of our lives and church will bring great light to the darkness in the world.
“All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, equipped for every good work.”
2 Timothy 3:16-17 ESV
