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.
They were afraid to ask Him. Have we changed any? If we do not ask, we will not be told, if we do not know, we can claim ignorance and do what we want. Sound familiar? How often do you use that excuse with God? Or do you just hide behind ignorance and live as you want? Ignorance is not bliss when it comes to following Christ. It is deadly to your soul.
Prayer: Heavenly Father, if I have ever pleaded ignorance of your word please forgive me and help me see where I am wrong. I want to learn your word and abolish all the ignorance in my life. In Jesus’ holy name, Amen.
The Lord will guard us as a shepherd guards his flock.
