Close Enough to Tell Off?

Tuesday 29th December

‘God with us!’ 

Close enough for Jesus to tell off his beloved John (and James) as easily as the scribes and Pharisees. 

A belief in Jesus that misfired when John asked for privileges in the Kingdom. Wasn’t the beloved status enough?

I think he eventually came to understand as he stood at the cross as Jesus died. The rest of John’s life was an unpacking and weaving of his account of the Jesus story.

Our calling too? To work out the significance of our ‘belovedness’?
