What age did Jesus start His ministry?

Why ask this? Countless reasons! The Word of God lived and continues to lives among Man, Amen. We now are blessed with The Holy Spirit for direction, comfort, revelation…to name a few.

The Gospel of Luke (Luke 3:23) states that Jesus was “about 30 years of age” at the start of his ministry. A chronology of Jesus typically has the date of the start of his ministry, 11 September 26 AD, others have estimated at around AD 27–29 and the end in the range AD 30–36.

The unknown years of Jesus (also called his silent yearslost years, or missing years) generally refers to the period of Jesus‘s life between his childhood and the beginning of his ministry, a period not described in the New Testament.

As asked above: “Why do we mention this?” Being believers, most of you have felt the effects of that promise made by Jesus that The Father would send The Holy Spirit being fulfilled in your lives. You have felt the quiet confirmation in your heart and mind that something was true. And you knew that it was inspiration from God. You feel peace, hope, and joy when it speaks to your heart and mind that something is true.

Acts 1:8 says, “But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes upon you. And you will be my witnesses, telling people about me everywhere—in Jerusalem, throughout Judea, in Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.” This power that comes from the Holy Spirit allows you to stand strong for the things of God.

The Holy Spirit in us gives us SPIRITUAL GIFTS. The gifts of the Spirit are laid out in 1 Corinthians 12:8-11 and speak to things such as miraculous healing, wisdom, prophecy, speaking in tongues, and discernment. These gifts were manifested 2,000 years ago, but they can be alive and well in our own lives today! Through personal experience and the testimonies of other, I have seen these gifts in action. Every time they have shown themselves, they have blessed the individual recipient of the gift as well as glorified God in the process.

Now is the time our culture needs to stand up, with the power of the Holy Spirit, for the things that grieve God. We are called to be the audible voices of God to the world around us. And, through that, we are able to have a voice to stand up for the injustices of this world. As things are calming down with riots and COVID-19, we need to never hide our God who lives inside of us.

You are here on Earth for a reason at this time! You are not ‘chance’!

We are to have compassion in our life. To have compassion is to “co-suffer”. That means when racism happens, we suffer with that community. When a disease outbreak happens, we suffer with those families. When our teachers have to pivot their classrooms to accommodate and they’re tired, lost, and confused, we suffer with them. This is something we are commanded to do. Colossians 3:12 says, “Therefore, as God’s chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness, and patience.”

The purpose of my life is to know God and hear his voice so I can live a life of servanthood and obedience; then I will be a God-defined person and a non-anxious presence in every situation.
