Luke.2.52 – And Jesus increased in wisdom and stature, and in favor with God and men.
Favor is a divine approval that comes to every child of God at the new birth. It could also mean unfair treatment that positions you for the best. It is that which we come into without struggle.
The good news is that you can grow in favour with God and man and I will show you how that can be done shortly but read this,
But grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. To Him be the glory both now and forever. Amen (2Pet.3.18).
To grow grow in grace is to increase in favour. You possibly can’t work for all that you need in life. That is one of the reasons Christ died for us to show the futility of man’s efforts.
Therefore to grow in favour, you need to
accept God’s love for you and love Him also. In loving God we understand how much he loves us. Also, love people.
They’re God’s only asset on earth. And because it is in your capacity to do, hate what God hates and get wisdom. The favor of God abides with you continually. Amen.
Savour with Sola John.
