God didn't just give us a book to know Him; He gave us a person. When God became one of us and put skin on, He shattered every notion of who He was. God revealed Himself to humanity through the life of Christ. We can know what God is like by looking at the face of Jesus. He is God's message to us - God's show-and-tell. Starting with Jesus not only helps us believe God exists, but also helps us know what God is like. The Gospel is good news because it makes very clear that God is good and love us like crazy. Becoming and being students of Jesus is how we can become the best version of ourselves.

When we reflect on the growth and transformation we hope to see in our lives, we can quickly forget the importance of staying connected to Christ. Disconnection leads to futility. Scripture backs up this point. Jesus says that if we remain connected to Him we can accomplish great things, but apart from Him, we can do nothing. God honors our effort when we rely on His strength. To remain is to be and to become. Relational disciplines are the way to stay in a place of trust. They are outside forces designed to help support the work on the inside. They serve as placeholders that allow our heart to catch up to our actions. They provide sufficient strength for the moment in the moment. What we remain in is what we become a disciple of.
