John 1:35-49; John 13:12-17
Jesus helped his disciples to go deep in their spiritual life by teaching them through words and deeds that were anchored in relationship. In just 3 years, through the teaching of Jesus, Jesus identified, rose up, and taught a hand-full of disciples that would end up establishing God’s kingdom on earth. The truth, in words and deeds, was taught by Jesus through relationship with the disciples as their mentor. A personal relationship teaches the heart to receive truth in a way that general vagueness does not. None of us are good enough. Yet Jesus calls each one of us into relationship to teach us for the transformation of the world. Let us be relational Christians and follow the model of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. God Loves Ya 😉
