New International Version (NIV)
The Father Revealed in the Son
25 At that time Jesus said, “I praise you, Father, Lord of heaven and earth, because you have hidden these things from the wise and learned, and revealed them to little children. 26 Yes, Father, for this is what you were pleased to do. 27 All things have been committed to me by my Father. No one knows the Son except the Father, and no one knows the Father except the Son and those to whom the Son chooses to reveal him. 28 Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. 29 Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. 30 For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.”
“It is a very sobering feeling to be up in space and realize that one’s safety factor was determined by the lowest bidder on a government contract.”
― Alan Shepard
To me, that’s a funny quote, but actually it is a sobering question. What are we all placing our trust in? Is it something worth committing to? Where can we find a strong and stable refuge in this dark and dangerous world?
You have committed all things to Jesus and in Him resides every hope, every promise, everything we need. May every soul seek and find His rest that is hidden from the wise and proud, and lavished on the meek and mild.
Thank You, Lord. Amen!
