Re:Verse reading–Luke 2:39-52 (day five)
A personal word of gratitude and appreciation for R.C. Sproul, who has influenced me and countless others to love the Lord more deeply and to study and cherish the Scriptures with passion and humility.
Luke 2 40 The Child continued to grow and become strong, increasing in wisdom; and the grace of God was upon Him. 52 And Jesus kept increasing in wisdom and stature, and in favor with God and men.
“And so he grew without the physical, mental and spiritual impediments of sin. And so it is natural to expect that he would be extraordinary as a human being even in his youth.” “Jesus continued to grow, not as we do sometimes, from sinfulness to obedience, but he moved from faith to faith, from grace to grace, from strength to strength, from obedience to higher levels of obedience, because as he increased in his understanding and knowledge of what God had called him to do, he had a greater capacity for deeper levels of obedience” “In all of these things he grew and grew, waiting for the beginning of his public ministry.” – R.C. Sproul
