I was thinking about the disciples of Jesus. Can you imagine the things they heard and saw! With their own eyes they saw those jaw-dropping miracles. With their own ears they heard His profound teaching. They watched and heard Him pray. No one ever had the kind of access to Jesus than these men.
And yet, they were still so spiritually dull…
- They couldn’t grasp what Jesus was teaching, even when He explained it to them privately.
- Their faith was sorely lacking.
- They argued among themselves over such petty things.
If these men—with their almost limitless access to Jesus—were still struggling in their faith, what would make me think I have ever “arrived”?
There is still so much more for me to learn about Jesus.
And I do want to learn more! I want to press in—closer and closer, deeper and deeper! I never want to stop learning my Savior’s heart and will!
What about you? Do you want more?
