I think it’s fascinating that,
as long as the disciples knew Jesus,
they had they hardest time knowing Him as He was,
Savior and LORD, God of the universe.
The concept was just too high for them.
Yes, they did not yet have the discernment of the Holy Spirit
while He was with them in flesh,
but I don’t think much has changed since then.
The more years I spent with Jesus,
the larger and more intimate and mysterious He becomes.
He reminds me that He is LORD and I am man,
but He want to be known just as I would know my wife
or parents or friends.
So, in a way, that invites me to appreciate the mystery of those
around me, to constantly be amazed by them,
as they lower their guard and I lower mine,
and we all catch a glimpse of something beautiful,
something God designed in the very beginning.
