Why don’t we rejoice in it? He does!

Luke 10:21 says that Jesus “rejoiced in the Holy Spirit and said, “I thank you, Father, Lord of heaven and earth, that you have hidden these things from the wise and understanding and revealed them to little children; yes, Father, for such was your gracious will.”” Jesus actually rejoiced that the Father hid truth from some, and rejoiced in His Father’s electing love. This has rocked my world, and what was once a loathsome thing, is sweetness and light, now I can see it.” If Jesus rejoices in His Father hiding (which speaks of activity) truth from some that He reveals to others, I think it should at least cause us to ask the question “why?” Why would God hiding some things from some and revealing His truth to others be precious to our Lord? Why does it not excite us the way it excited Jesus? (that’s something to think about for sure)

I read this from an article you can read in it’s entirety HERE.

And I ask you the question: Why? Why does that which brought Jesus rejoicing(the hiding truth from some and the revealing it to others) not bring us the same?
