Luke 2:32 New International Version (NIV)
32 a light for revelation to the Gentiles,
and the glory of your people Israel.”
Jesus had a relatedness to God. God led him to a loving dependence on and surrender to the Father. God wants to relate to us and to be in our lives. Having a dependence on God is an important part of our relationship with him. When we surrender to the Father, we are strong in him. We are his and he is ours. We also will find that the priorities of God become our priorities.
