What Jesus Did! 'Authority to Reveal the Father' — Luke 10:22

Saturday, July 6, 2019

[Jesus said,] "My Father has entrusted everything to me. No one truly knows the Son except the Father, and no one truly knows the Father except the Son and those to whom the Son chooses to reveal him."
— Luke 10:22 NLT

Key Thought

Jesus reveals God. Do you want to know God? You need to look to Jesus! Jesus is God's ultimate expression in human form. He is God's Living Word — God's message spoken through the life of Jesus. Jesus has authority over everything. He knows and reveals the Father. So, if you really want to know God, get to know Jesus!

Today's Prayer

Father, thank you for revealing yourself in Jesus, your Son and my Savior. In Jesus' name, I praise and thank you for this gift. Amen.
