“Jesus gave them this answer: “Very truly I tell you, the Son can do nothing by himself. He only can do what he sees his Father doing because whatever the Father does, the Son also does. For the Father loves the Son and shows him all he does. Yes, and he will show him even greater works than these so that you will be amazed.” (John 5:19-20)
If we look at the big picture, History is the story of Revelation. Within this panorama, our personal history is the story of God’s revelation in our lives. Jesus did what He saw His Father was doing. Then, when Jesus looked at Zacchaeus climbing up a sycamore tree, he was absorbed in His Father. Zaccheus felt no one in the world had ever looked at him that way. And instead of rejecting him, Jesus asked the man to climb down to dine together! When Mary Magdalene was freed from lapidation and heard no condemnation words from her Rabbi, she was overwhelmed by two eyes full of mercy and love. After Peter’s denial, Jesus did not point him out all his sins; He only asked him: “Peter, do you love me?”
Pray to the Lord that you grow in love and knowledge. Ask him to help you become more familiar with Him. And to absorb his look, his affection, and words. Pray Jesus that sin and flaws are not obstacles for us to reach people because it is ill people needing the doctor, not those who feel spotless.
My beloved Jesus, help me know you better and dwell in your affection to become a witness of your love
