HE HAS REVEALED HIS PLAN!
Luk 10:21 On that same occasion Jesus rejoiced in the Holy Spirit and said, “I praise you, Father, Lord of the sky and the land, because you have hidden these things from the wise and intelligent, and revealed them to little children. Yes, Father, because this was your gracious will.
Luk 10:22 All things have been given to me by my Father. No one knows who the Son is except the Father, or who the Father is except the Son and anyone to whom the Son decides to reveal him.”
Luk 10:23 Then Jesus turned to his disciples and said privately, “Blessed are the eyes that see what you see!
Luk 10:24 Because I am telling you that many prophets and kings longed to see what you see but have not seen it, and to hear what you hear but have not heard it.”
revelation and relationship
Jesus advised his evangelistic workers not to focus on the power he granted them, but to rejoice instead that their names were recorded. In other words, it was their standing, their relationship with God which is the lasting miracle. Now, Jesus elaborates on how that relationship came about. Those evangelists saw and heard what God revealed through Christ, believed it, and the relationship was born. Many prophets and kings sought God through wisdom, but he did not reveal the gospel to them. Christ appeared, and changed that forever.
LORD thank you for the relationship we can now have with you, now that you have revealed yourself in the gospel of Jesus Christ.
