Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword?…Yet in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us.
Romans 8:35, 37
Jesus said, “Foxes have holes and birds of the air have nests, but the Son of Man has nowhere to lay His head” (Matthew 8:20). I find this statement so beautiful. Let me tell you why.
In the original Greek text, the word for “lay” is a very unique word, klino. The only other place it is used in terms of Jesus resting His head is at the cross. When Jesus hung on the cross and cried, “It is finished!” the Bible says, “And bowing His head, He gave up His spirit” (John 19:30). The word “bowing” here is the same Greek word, klino.
Beloved, it was only at the cross that the Son of Man finally found a place to rest His head. Jesus found His rest in redeeming us, in loving us. We, in turn, find rest in feeding on His sacrificial love for us. Whatever the challenge or need you are facing today, He has made you more than a conqueror through His love, so meditate on His love for you today!
