For us to be able to see Jesus for who he really is, is not simply a word thing.
True discipleship consists of those who continue the journey of the cross Jesus began. The retreat to the safety of talking about Jesus is simply an exercise of arms length faith: it’s easy then to get bogged down into what someone else says!
Seeing Jesus, knowing him is beyond safety for it is experiencing the power of God for ourselves. True discipleship is seeing Jesus and following him, wherever he leads, irrespective of what we do or do not understand – we are to be, first and last, Jesus followers
