When Jesus saw His mother and the disciple whom He loved standing nearby, He said to His mother, "Woman, behold your son." Then He said to the disciple, "Behold your mother."
We know the beloved disciple is trusting in the Savior. But isn't it a marvelous thought that Savior is trusting in John?
How wonderful to marvel at this sacred trust. Now as the Sovereign One, Jesus could easily provide for His earthly mother by employing heavenly hosts. However, He elects a human follower. He entrusts His mother into the care of a beloved and trusted disciple. What a privilege to be trusted with this earthly responsibility.
As a sovereign, Jesus could easily evangelize the world by employing heavenly hosts. However He elects human followers. He entrusts the evangelization of the gospel into the care of beloved and trusted disciples. What a privilege to be trusted with this earthly responsibility. I know most of us are trusting in the Savior. I wonder if the Savior is trusting in us?
