Sometimes when children go out, Christian parents tell them, “Remember to whom you belong.” They want the knowledge of Christ to determine their children’s conduct when they are away from home.
“I know where I came from and where I am going.”
Jesus knew to whom he belonged. He also knew where he came from and where he was going. For he was a participant in the divine work of salvation, the heavenly project to bring man back to his God.
Man prizes spontaneity. God prizes planning.
Man values the moment. God values history and a promising future.
Man likes to do what whatever comes to mind. God desire to fulfill his eternal plan.
Man loses himself in the present. God finds him for eternity.
Following Jesus, man knows much more. He understands his place in the universe and his role in the will of God.
