Genesis 24:58 Then they called Rebekah and said to her, “Will you go with this man?” And she said, “I will go.”
What a vulnerable, poignant…and powerful moment! As Rebekah was willing to “leave and cleave” so we who love Jesus have embraced Him for a whole new way of life. We are leaving behind the futile way of life inherited from our earthly families (1 Peter 1:18) to embrace the altogether spiritual life that He offers us.
Let us go to him with the hope and the willingness and the vulnerability with which Rebekah went to Isaac. Jesus will not disappoint us. On the contrary, He will be “even more than we could ask or think” (Ephesians 3:20).
