Please take a moment to consider the time and the effort God had spent over these many years to come and make Himself known in your own life. Ponder the countless times He came back after each rejection you gave to His call. The continual, patient knocking and waiting at the door to your heart. This is the great underlying theme of the understanding of God’s love for him, that the Apostle John had as he wrote down his record of the Gospel of Christ. He knew himself to be ‘a wicked, lost, hell-bound sinner’ saved by the unfathomable grace of God through the Son of God. To such an extent was his comprehension of this that he durst not bring any attention to himself, but simply out of a great appreciation and thanks wrote of himself as ‘the disciple whom Jesus loved’. One would like to think that had yourself been there with the Lord for that last supper, you too would be that disciple that wanted to be so close to his God as to be the one even lying on the Lord’s breast.
We are very much like the Pharisees mentioned in Matthew 23, where because of our position of teachers/preachers we are able to speak from the seat of Moses, so that men believe our teaching to be from God. Thus we need to take heed that unlike the Pharisees we do not estrange people from God but rather bring them closer unto the Lord Jesus Christ.
