“In that hour Jesus rejoiced in spirit, and said, I thank thee, O Father, Lord of heaven and earth, that thou hast hid these things from the wise and prudent, and hast revealed them unto babes: even so, Father; for so it seemed good in thy sight.”
Previously, in considering the benefits of soul winning, we realized that satan falls as lightening and our names are written in heaven. Today, we will look at the benefit of deeper revelation God has given the soul winner and the blessing of Jesus Christ trusting us with this revelation.
Jesus was grateful to His Father and said, “I thank thee, O Father, Lord of heaven and earth, that thou hast hid these things from the wise and prudent, and hast revealed them unto babes.” There are many knowledgeable and sagacious people in the world, but in all their knowing, they don’t know personally the Lord Jesus Christ. My excitement should be that I “…understandeth and knoweth me, that I am the LORD…” (Jeremiah 9:23-24).
Jesus Christ rejoiced in the fact that babe-like hearts might know the deep things of God; that all things were opened to Him in His humanity as in the ages before He became man; and that He was permitted to reveal the Father to those who loved and obeyed Him. It was for these, and for us, to know things hidden from prophets and kings. It’s a great privilege to be trusted with such knowledge and to be counted worthy to share it.
Pray for a deeper revelation and knowledge of Jesus Christ as you go out to witness.
