Jesus even as a boy was resolved to do the will of his Father in heaven. He learned obedience, he submitted to his earthly parents, he loved people well. However, his devotion and vision were centered on his Father’s will to redeem men. He was obedient to his earthly obligations, he followed the law of God, the Torah, he was obedient even to death on a cross. Because of the resolve and obedience Jesus showed from his earliest days we can be sure that he has accomplished his work on the cross and he will come again. We live as those with hope; we live as those with purpose and to bring him glory. He has and will complete his work, we can be sure of this.
