(Matthew 14:33) When you look at how the Disciples responded to Jesus over the course of there time with him, you’ll see that it sure seemed to take forever for them to finally get who Jesus was. They witnessed so many amazing things yet, it wasn’t until the end of their time with Jesus that they finally began to understand that he really was the Son of God. Even still there were some that doubted it all after Jesus died, and it wasn’t until Jesus appeared to them that they finally got the faith in order.
Do we go through life with the same failure to really understand, and live, knowing who Christ is? I think it’s almost better for us to have trails in our life so that we can see plainly our daily need for him in our lives. It’s an amazing thing to have someone that loves us even when we fail at understand him. That definitely isn’t how the world works. Thank God for that, really. We need to be reminded each day that Jesus wasn’t just some great teacher that we can learn from, he was the example for our lives and the only way to have a relationship with God. That is amazing, and we shouldn’t forget it.
