Daily Thought: The Mission of Jesus

Because we easily imagine ourselves in need, we imagine that God is ready to forsake us.  The miracles of Jesus were the ordinary works of His Father, wrought small and swift that we might take them in.  The lesson of them was that help is always within God's reach when His children want it.

The mission undertaken by the Son was not to show Himself as having all the power in heaven and earth, but to reveal His Father, that men may know Him, and knowing, trust Him.  Jesus came to give them God, who is eternal life.
