Jesus Christ is known by many different names to many, but we often don’t view Jesus as a Businessman. So was Jesus a Businessman? At the age of twelve, Jesus asked his parents who thought that he was lost, when he was in the temple, “Wist ye not that I must be about my Father’s (God’s) business?” (Luke 2:49). In other words, Jesus treated the work that God had sent him to do, which was to become the Savior of the world (1 John 4:14), as a business, and Jesus himself said, that he had come to do the will of God who had sent him and not his own will (John 6:38).
A business runs on the premise of being profitable and businesses that don’t make of profit become bankrupt and non-existent. When Jesus willingly offered himself to become the sacrifice that is acceptable to God, he could boldly proclaim from the Cross that “the business (work) that God had sent him to accomplish is now finished.” (John 19:30) In other words, Jesus The Businessman, ensured that by his life and death and resurrection, God, his Father, would profit to gain the whole world if they belief in his Son, that he had sent, for the redemption of mankind.
Points to ponder:
Jesus The Businessman was all about God’s business? Are you and I the same like Jesus? Has God profited with your soul? In other words, have you believed in Jesus The Businessman, who brings about reconciliation with God when you believe, and the sealing of your soul for eternal life.
Luke 2:49 (KJV)
49 And he said unto them, How is it that ye sought me? wist ye not that I must be about my Father’s business?
John 19:30 (KJV)
30 When Jesus therefore had received the vinegar, he said, It is finished: and he bowed his head, and gave up the ghost.
1 John 4:14 (KJV)
14 And we have seen and do testify that the Father sent the Son to be the Saviour of the world.
