..."Many believed in His name when they saw the signs that He was doing. But Jesus did not entrust Himself to them, because He knew all people."
Yes, He knows the hearts of all people. He knows the hearts of those of us who seem excited about Him, but when sent out to do His will, we are immediately consumed by outside factors and lose sight of Him. He knows the hearts of those of us who respond to Him, yet do not go any deeper and fall away because we never build a relationship with Him through prayer and time in His Word. He knows the hearts of those of us who begin to follow Him, but then surround ourselves with people who are opposed to Him and influence us to turn away from Him. Jesus knows those of us who hear His voice and drop what we are doing to pursue Him with everything we have.
Jesus knows our hearts. Because Jesus knows my heart, can I say with assurance that He would entrust Himself to me? Let us take this as a challenge to follow Him at any cost and really get to know Him.
