Jesus Was Thankful

“At that same time Jesus was filled with the joy of the Holy Spirit, and he said, “O Father, Lord of heaven and earth, thank you for hiding these things from those who think themselves wise and clever, and for revealing them to the childlike. Yes, Father, it pleased you to do it this way.”
Luke 10:21, NLT

hands-talking-1311843-640x480As we read through the New Testament, we are able to glean from Jesus’ life some characteristics worth emulating in our own lives. In this passage, we see Jesus praying to His Father in heaven and thanking Him for orchestrating their mission in a way that pleased Him. Today, let’s spend time in prayer thanking God for the opportunity He has given us to be examples of Christ to a lost and dying world. Thank Him for the people He has placed in our life who are searching and in need of hope and ask for the chance to speak truth into their lives. Finally, let’s thank God and praise Him in advance for all He is going to do through us as we faithfully commit our lives to be on mission for His kingdom.
