As we follow the example of our Lord and Savior, we can glean some insights of discipleship through His interaction with people. There is so much we can learn from our Lord, but I would like to point out few ‘points’ within the context of our discussion.
Jesus allowed people to approach Him with the questions and concerns on their heart. Let’s look at a few examples:
(1) Nicodemus – John 3:1-11
(2) James and John – Mark 10:35-45
(3) The Rich Young Ruler – Mark 10:17-22
(4) The Disciples – Mark 10:23-30
Now, when you read these verses, there are some underlying themes. Jesus was (1) available, accessible, and approachable; (2) allowed others to ask just about any question and make any comment; and (3) responded to each question and concern and raising their level of understanding toward righteousness.
