He rejoiced

The last week of the school year starts tomorrow. Billy & the teachers have made great progress.

I preached on Eve & how Satan lies to us. I needed to hear it more than anyone. It was like a congregation of one.

Luke 10:21 says, “In that hour Jesus rejoiced in spirit and said ‘I thank thee O Father, Lord of heaven and earth that thou hast hid thee things from the wise and prudent and has revealed them unto babes: even so Father, for it seemed good in your sight”.

This is the only place in the Bible where it said that Jesus rejoiced while praying to His Father. Was it glad that the Father hid stuff from the wise men? Or was He happy that the Father revealed it to the babes. He NEVER rejoiced in the lostness of men but rather is their repentance.

The hiding things spoken of here are the truths that God alone knows and no one can ever discover those truths apart from a revelation by God. Babes are characterized by faith and trust. We adults are more prone to be characterized by confidence in ourselves.

Matthew 18:3 says, “We must become as little children”. I Corinthians 1:18 says, “The cross is foolishness to the world.” Babes accept what they see. They do not question its truth.

Realizing our own helplessness is the first step to receiving race and truth unto salvation”.
