Pastor Hanli considers how Jesus reveals himself to the disciples in this passage. The Lord reveals himself to be the all-sufficient, caring, and servant-hearted Lord who takes care of his disciples. What glorious encouragement to the church! 
Yet we also see that to have a mere intellectual understanding of this should not be sufficient for us, we must long for that intimate and personal revelation of him in our hearts. Verse 1 of this passage clearly shows that it is Jesus who chooses how, when, and to whom he reveals himself. We are entirely unworthy to claim or demand that he reveals himself to us. Our only hope is his revealed character and promises in the bible which show him to be the gracious One who delights to rescue sinners who cry out to him. May he give all of us that desire to seek him and not to rest until he answers our cry! 

@ 34:00, Hanli reflects on the meaning and significance of the Lord's supper and how West Church has chosen to proceed in this topic whilst we are prevented from gathering physically.
