"Dying, Jesus said 'yes' to the Father obeying him to death; raising him, the Father said 'yes' to the Son making him Lord." (Fr.. Raniero Cantalamessa) Jesus' "yes" has brought us redemption and eternal life. The Father's yes" is his promise to bring us into eternal glory as long as our "yes" is to  live under the Lordship of Jesus. In the words of St. Paul: "For the Son of God, Jesus Christ, who was proclaimed to you by us, Silvanus and Timothy and me, was not 'yes' and 'no,' but 'yes' has been in him. For however many are the promises of God, their Yes is in him; therefore, the Amen from us also goes through him to God for glory." (2 Cor 1:19-20) Today, let our "yes" be to the Father through the Lord Jesus in the power of the Holy Spirit. Like Jesus, let our "yes" be a sign of our total trust in the Father's love and promise in this and every moment of our lives. YES means Yield Everything to the Savior.
