Are you still a servant?

Did Jesus show you the path yet?

Maybe this can help!

I no longer call you servants, because a servant does not know his master’s business. Instead, I have called you friends, for everything that I learned from my Father I have made known to you.” – John 15:15

Isn’t it interesting that this was said to a group of men who just a few years prior were Jewish law keepers?

You cannot serve the law and be a friend of Christ because the law was only meant to get you TO Christ NOT be an evaluation tool for righteousness as it is being taught in many places!

The “Masters business” is this “Love one another”, “Love the least of these” – this is salvation by Grace, a walk of Grace and The Path to Peace!

What did Jesus make “known to you” when He was talking to His disciples?

Look at His ministry, His teaching, His life, His death and His resurrection! This is Not the law, this is Love! This is Not shame and condemnation, this is Peace and rest in Who He Is, What He did and What you Now are once you believe in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ!

Go all the way back to Adam and Eve and you will see one overriding and eternal truth – GOD LOVES YOU and He wants a relationship with you more than anything else!

Can you have a relationship based on shame and condemnation? Yes you could but it is filled with resentment and bitterness and depression and pretty much every negative emotion you could name!

What Jesus came to make known is that the law gets you to that relationship but Christ Alone was, is and always will be The Answer! What Jesus came to make known is that The LOVE and relentless pursuit of The Passionate Abba for you is so deep that He would sacrifice His Only Son just to hold you in His lap and tell you how Very special you are! and Be a Friend not a servant any longer!
