What is it about us that causes us to lose our sense of wonder as we get older? Do we just get too caught up in our rat race world, unable to separate ourselves from the pursuit of pleasure and possessions? How can we encounter the revelation of God when we expend all of our energies in worshiping ourselves? We need to slow our lives down and experience the Lord like a child does, with arms wide open.
Jesus rejoiced in the Holy Spirit and said,
“I give you praise, Father, Lord of heaven and earth,
for although you have hidden these things
from the wise and the learned
you have revealed them to the childlike.
Yes, Father, such has been your gracious will.
All things have been handed over to me by my Father.
No one knows who the Son is except the Father,
and who the Father is except the Son
and anyone to whom the Son wishes to reveal him.”
Worship him with arms wide open.
