While they were all amazed at his every deed, Jesus said to his disciples, “Pay attention to what I am telling you. The Son of Man is to be handed over to men.” But they did not understand this saying; its meaning was hidden from them so that they should not understand it, and they were afraid to ask him about this saying.
Still today people do not understand what Jesus is saying. Not because it is hidden from them but because they refuse to listen. They refuse to believe the truth He spoke then and that it is still true today. Do you refuse to listen? Do you refuse to believe what He says? Why? Is it too hard? Do you think you have to give up too much? Whatever you give up for Him will be replaced 100 times over. Have faith, give your life to Him and see how joyful your life becomes.
Prayer: Heavenly Father, thank you for all that you have done for me. Help me to have never lose faith in all you say and do. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
In every age, O Lord, you have been our refuge.
