Notes from the Journey with the Disciples – 19

19. You shall see heaven opened (John 1:51).
When Christ invites us to follow Him, He doesn’t promise ease or lavish comfort. He does promise the unique and powerful presence of God. As His followers, we are guided by a determined effort to see what others don’t see, to know with confidence what others are reluctant to believe. A journey of faith requires moments that are not grasped by reason or common wisdom. Such a journey is launched by and maintained by a confidence built on what we believe we have seen as we look to Him. Nathanael and the others will see great miracles, but ultimately they must see that heaven has been opened to them. Otherwise, they will lack the strength to pursue what is ahead.
