John 2: 24-25 NIV: 24: But JESUS would not entrust himself to them, for he knew all people. 25: He did not need any TESTIMONY ABOUT MANKIND, for HE KNEW what was in each person.
FOR HE, JESUS, KNEW WHAT WAS IN EACH PERSON is a fact of THE LORD’s Word!
This is a phenomenal truth that may bring a mixture of reactions or responses. Maybe wonder, awe, perhaps fear and warning and even great trepidation?
Mankind may “fool” others but nobody can fool God! Jesus knew what was in each person even while he was fully man and dwelt among us and the fact of Scripture is that He has overcome the world! Jesus Christ is The Risen Christ and Reigning King and He and His Father and Holy Spirit Reign as Sovereign LORD! The Omniscient, omnipresent, omni-powerful LORD GOD Almighty, Maker of Heaven and earth cannot be thwarted. God's purposes will prevail. The gates of hell will not prevail against Him! We can trust His Knowing and judgment, His mercy and His grace!
Jesus alone knows hearts. It is not what man thinks that ultimately matters but what God KNOWS!
I take great comfort that when my heart condemns me, He is greater than my heart and knows everything, because I am IN CHRIST! Being IN CHRIST is everything we need to be forgiven, free, transformed and live free from condemnation and sins reign. What assurance of His Love and Grace is evident in His knowing yet loving and forgiving and accepting us because of WHO HE IS and WHAT HE HAS DONE FOR US!
We love because He first loved us.
