God’s inscrutability doesn’t imply that faith is a leap in the dark. Rather, we ought to consider the evidence of Scripture with reasoned trust. Although by nature we tend to suppress the truth, our minds are indispensable, teaches Alistair Begg. Through faith, God opens our hearts and minds to consider all that He reveals and points us toward Jesus, our incomparable Savior, Shepherd, and Friend.
5Have this mind among yourselves, which is yours in Christ Jesus,1 6who, though he was in the form of God, did not count equality with God a thing to be grasped, 7but emptied himself, by taking the form of a servant,2 being born in the likeness of men. 8And being found in human form, he humbled himself by becoming obedient to the point of death, even death on a cross. 9Therefore God has highly exalted him and bestowed on him the name that is above every name, 10so that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, 11and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.
