Entrusted to Jesus

"The believer entrusts himself or herself to Jesus in a way that Jesus would not entrust himself to human beings ([John] 2:24). An interesting contrast is thereby set up. Jesus would not entrust himself to human beings because he knew them and what was in them ans what was in their hearts. by the end of the gospel, the readers of the gospel are invited to entrust themselves to Jesus because they have seen what is in the heart of Jesus; the have seen the revelation of the Father and his love and can therefore entrust themselves to both with confidence."The Faith of Jesus Christ:, page 235

I had never noticed that before; quite the contrast, isn't it? The evidence reveals that the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit are fully trustworthy. I'll take the plunge!
