Following Jesus 25

We continue our examination of how followers of Jesus today are like the Apostle John. As such, they are persons committed to biblical love and truth. If this is the case, these followers of Jesus will demonstrate two realities or truths in their personal lives which John speaks of in 2 John 1-3.

Are you like John?

John speaks quite eloquently about the love of God. His treatment of this attribute of God is far reaching and a characteristic that each believer must imitate.

John speaks quite eloquently about the love of God. His treatment of this attribute of God is far reaching and a characteristic that each believer must imitate.

John states that God the Father loves Christ’s disciples (John 16:25-28; 17:20-23). He also indicates that God loves all types of men and mankind (John 3:16; I John 3:1).

Following Jesus 21

Are you like John?

The next disciple we examine and study is the Apostle John. Much like Peter, Andrew and James, John possessed characteristics and behavior traits that believers today may imitate. Are you like John? If so, how are you like him?

Let us explore some facts about John. John was son of Zebedee (Mark 3:17). He is always mentioned with his brother James in the gospels. He is always listed after his brother James. This would seem to indicate that James was the elder of the two.

Following Jesus 20

Are you like James?

James was a disciple who was ambitious and goal orientated, as seen in Matthew 20:20-28. He was also zealous as we witnessed in Luke 9L51-56. Finally, James was willing to suffer for Christ. He was a follower of Jesus who submitted to the sovereign will of God: even until physical death.

To be zealous means to be enthusiastic, passionate, intense; maybe even obsessive and compulsive. However, often with unhindered zeal comes a lack of restraint and wisdom. There becomes a focus almost exclusively on how one feels. We witness an example of James’ zealousness in Luke 9:51-56.

Following Jesus 17

Followers of Jesus who are like James are ambitious and goal orientated. To be ambitious means to be determined; one who is constantly striving, motivated and single minded. This is how James thought. This is how James lived.

Following Jesus 16

Following Jesus refers to being a disciple of Jesus. Being a disciple of Jesus entails following Jesus’ leading and learning from His teaching in order to take upon oneself, by God’s enablement, Jesus’ character.

We began our quest by looking at the character of Simon Peter. The second disciple we examined was Andrew. We now begin looking at James, the son of Zebedee.
