embracing Jesus’ love


devotional post #1,998

Luke 13:34-35

Luk 13:34 O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, you who kill the prophets and stone those who are sent to you! How often I have longed to gather your children together as a hen gathers her chicks under her wings, but you would have none of it!
Luk 13:35 Notice, your house is forsaken! And I tell you, you will not see me until you say, ‘Blessed is the one who comes in the name of the Lord!'”

embracing Jesus’ love

Jesus compares himself to a mother hen, gathering her chicks to herself to protect them from harm. But the chicks have other ideas. They scatter to the four winds, helpless in the face of danger — a forsaken house. And that is how they will remain until they accept who he is — their Messiah, coming in the LORD’s name.

LORD, we embrace your love and protection, and seek to draw others to you.
