Scripture

When Jesus had finished all these sayings, he said to his disciples, “You know that after two days the Passover is coming, and the Son of Man will be delivered up to be crucified.” Then the chief priests and the elders of the people gathered in the palace of the high priest, whose name was Caiaphas, and plotted together in order to arrest Jesus by stealth and kill him. But they said, “Not during the feast, lest there be an uproar among the people.” – Matthew 26:1-5 (NLT)

Diving Deeper

Jesus knows all. This characteristic of God is called omniscience. Therefore, Jesus cannot be surprised. This is both reassuring and terrifying. It is reassuring because Jesus’ words can be trusted. When he says, “When everything is ready, I will come and get you, so that you will always be with me where I am” (John 14:3), we rejoice at his words because he knows all and his word is trustworthy. But this is also scary because that means he knows the darkest thoughts in our minds. The stuff we keep hidden from everyone else, Jesus knows. This would be terrifying if God was not good. But God is good. In fact, he is the only one who is (Luke 18:19).

Reflection

Write/speak a prayer praising God for knowing all and then confess to God about the thoughts or actions that embarrass you. Ask for his forgiveness and to teach you to forgive yourself. Ask him to show you how important you are to him.
