Where do your loyalties lie? God calls us into such a deeply complex but hilariously simple relationship of grace, trust, and constant rebirth. God modeled out His love for us in His first disciples, in the way that He called them, inspired them into action, and forgave them in their moments of greatest weakness. Jesus did not allow them to fail in their mistakes, nor did He enable them. Under His care and by the Holy Spirit, they grew into men of good character and incredible merit. Jesus edified them in every way, and loved them in a way that should stretch us all as we watch Him. In the end He called them friends, and loved them not because they were perfect or flawless, by any means, but because they had been changed by Him, and knew — in every fiber of their beings — that He could be trusted.
