Jesus rejoiced in the Holy Spirit
“I praise You, Father,
Lord of heaven and earth,
because You have hidden these things
from the wise and the intelligent
and have revealed them to infants;
yes, Father, for such was Your gracious will.”
– Luke 10:21 (NRSV)
It is not that Jesus is against the wise and intelligent.
Jesus knows, however,
that those who arrogantly regard themselves as having a superior intellect,
become so full of themselves,
so haughty and proud,
that even in matters of religion
they loftily consider others to be inferior
and, possibly, less worthy!
Such persons, invariably,
fail to apply Jesus’ constant call for humility to themselves
and, therefore, they can never go
beyond the human realm in their understanding of Christ.
blocks having a genuine personal relationship with Jesus.
The humble, on the other hand,
(and to be humble does not mean to lack intellect)
experience Christ in a very special personal manner,
as the Spirit faithfully reveals to them
that which is otherwise beyond human understanding
…that which brings deep and indescribable joy!
