Are You Willing?

“ often I have longed to gather your children together, as a hen gathers her chicks under her wings, and you were not willing” (Matthew 23:37). (Matthew 23:37)

Virtually the entire chapter of Matthew 23 is the record of Jesus’ diatribe against the Jewish leaders for their hypocrisy and their legalistic religiosity. In seven separate charges, often referred to as “The Seven Woes,” Jesus begins attacks on their wayward understanding and destructive leadership with the words, ”Woe to you” and follows each with a passionate expression of righteous indignation. It is a scathing assault, easily His harshest and most extensive rebuke in all the gospels.

As His reproach draws to a close, our Savior breaks into a lament revealing His heart for those He longed to save.

Jesus’ fervent desire was to deliver Israel from the chaos of their darkness; to give them peace from the storms of life; and provide rest from their wearisome, futile efforts to find fulfillment in what the world has to offer. He wanted to protect them and save them from the consequences of their sin and give them eternal life. But they were not willing.

And now, almost two-thousand years later, that’s what Jesus wants to do for you today. Are you willing?

“Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened and I will give you rest” (Matthew 11:28).

Question: Have you accepted God’s provision of a Savior to take away your sins and give you eternal life?

Challenge: The Bible tells us that we’re all made in God’s image, but we’re not His children until we receive Jesus and believe He is who He says He is (John 1:12). Consider the claims of Jesus.

Prayer: Lord, I praise you and thank you for providing a Savior who transforms our lives, and gives the promise of eternity in heaven to all who believe.
