As I’ve been working on my BSF lesson questions for the week, one question was this: What does Jesus’ revelation of Himself mean to you and your life today?
This could be applicable to any point in the Bible where we’re given some sort of depiction of who Jesus is – whether by His ministry outlined in the Gospels or the prophecies of Him in the OT.
BSF is going over Matthew this year so this question is currently being applied in chapter 26, fittingly right as Jesus is being arrested and charged with blasphemy as we just celebrated Easter in present day.
Back to the question though…
Any revelation about Jesus has provided further truth about who He is – to us as a body of believers, me as a Christian having a personal relationship with Him, and the world who may still need that evidence.
For me, that provides hope and a constant stability I can lean on.
The past week, mainly past few days, I’ve been really worn down by my feeling inadequate, ignorant, and stressed. Really just work related… but it always ends up carrying over to my non-work life and I’ve been really down about it. I’ve felt like I suddenly don’t know what I’m doing which hasn’t happened in months since I’ve gotten used to my job and my duties. Though I’ve learned a lot, it was an eye opener a few days ago that I still have a lot to learn and that I still need to ask for help – apparently even if I think I’m doing what I’m supposed to (see my dilemma?).
For me in those times, I just feel like I don’t know anything at all. Then I get to this and I’m like well, if I don’t know anything else, at least I know Jesus. And really, isn’t that the most important thing to know anyway?
But Jesus remained silent. And the high priest said to him, “I adjure you by the living God, tell us if you are the Christ, the Son of God.” Jesus said to him, “You have said so. But I tell you, from now on you will see the Son of Man seated at the right hand of Power and coming on the clouds of heaven.”Matthew 26:63-64
