Do You Rely on Your Intellect?

“In that hour Jesus rejoiced in the Spirit and said, ‘I thank You, Father, Lord of heaven and earth, that You have hidden these things from the wise and prudent and revealed them to babes. Even so, Father, for so it seemed good in Your sight. All things have been delivered to Me by My Father, and no one knows who the Son is except the Father, and who the Father is except the Son, and the one to whom the Son wills to reveal Him.’”

Luke 10:21-22

Ponder This

What is the great need in the world today? Is it information? We’re drowning in a sea of information. If it is information that we need, God would have sent us an educator. Is it technology? If technology had been the need, God would have sent a scientist or a developer. Is it money? Do you think that your problems would be solved if you had more money? If money had been the need, God would’ve sent an economist. Do you think the need is more leisure? Maybe God should have sent an entertainer. No, our greatest need is salvation. So, God sent a Savior.

I’m amazed, in wonder, and blessed that He sent the message to humble shepherds. And Herod, the king, never did quite get it. He never did quite understand. But humble shepherds understood the message. Why? Because God has, “hidden these things from the wise and the prudent and has revealed them unto babes.” Do you want to understand Jesus Christ? Then lay your intellectual pride in the dust and come to Him and say, “Lord, reveal the truth to me.”
