Are You Communicating Like Jesus?

“No longer do I call you servants, for a servant does not know what his master is doing; but I have called you friends, for all things that I heard from My Father I have made known to you.”

John 15:15

Ponder This

In marriage, there must be a lasting commitment, but there must also be loving communication. Many marriages get into difficulty because the husband and the wife don’t learn how to communicate. Again, let’s go back to the analogy of Christ and the Church. Does Jesus Christ communicate with the Church? Yes, He does. He’s given us His Word. He speaks to us. He has sent His Spirit into our hearts. He whispers to our being that we belong to Him. We have the most intimate relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ, who said, “No longer do I call you servants, for a servant does not know what his master is doing.” He has given His Spirit to share His heart and life with us. Most husbands and wives who fail in their marriages have not learned to communicate.

  • What are some ways you’ve seen communication as an obstacle in your own marriage or marriages of those close to you?
  • What would it look like to communicate with those around you in the manner Jesus communicates with you?

Real Truth Never Changes

Real truth never changes, and the truth about government is that it is God who ordains it, leaders who are responsible for it, and citizens who are accountable to it. The privilege of being called Americans comes with significant responsibilities—to God, to each other, and to the world.
