Keep On Learning From Jesus….

Look! We are going up to Jerusalem, and the Son of man will be handed over to the chief priests and the scribes. They will condemn him to death and hand him over to men of the nations to be mocked and scourged and executed on a stake; and on the third day he will be raised up.

=====================================================

We have sound reasons to keep on learning from Jesus. In his prehuman existence, Jesus spent untold millenniums working with his Father.  He knew that the best way of life centered on serving God and bearing witness to the truth.  It was clear to Jesus that any other way of life would be selfish and shortsighted. He knew that he would be tested severely and put to death.  As our Exemplar, he taught us how to be integrity keepers.

Shortly after Jesus was baptized, Satan tempted him to abandon the best way of life but to no avail.  This teaches us that regardless of what Satan does, we can maintain our integrity. He is likely to focus his attention on those approaching baptism as well as on newly baptized ones.

Opposition may come from well-intentioned but misinformed family members. Yet, such tests afford us opportunities to manifest fine Christian qualities, such as respect and tact, when we answer questions and give a witness.  These experiences can therefore have a positive effect on those who listen to us
