“Neither knoweth any man the Father, save the Son, and he to whomsoever the Son will reveal him.“
Only the Son can reveal the Father. How do you have the Father revealed to you then?
Do you sit around and passively hope you are one of the few whom the Father arbitrarily chooses to reveal Himself to? Or is there something we can do to know the Father?
The verse quoted above is Matthew 11:27 and you know the next verse! It’s one of those cliche verses thrown around left and right.
“Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.“
All we have to do is come and learn. Unfortunately, there is only one group who will truly come, those who are laboring and heavy laden.
“Labour” means those who are weary, tired and exhausted. “Heavy laden” are those overburdened.
What is the burden and weariness from? He doesn’t specify, so I hesitate to. My guess is that it’s spiritual burden, knowing you aren’t making it, tired of failure, tired of the games that life runs you through.
I JUST WANT TO KNOW HIM!
I don’t want burdens, toil and effort in everyone’s stupid games they’ve invented. I JUST WANT TO KNOW GOD!
Ever felt that?! I hope so, because that’s where faith begins.
