John 1:11-15

John 1:11-15 New International Version (NIV)

11 He came to that which was his own, but his own did not receive him. 12 Yet to all who did receive him, to those who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God— 13 children born not of natural descent, nor of human decision or a husband’s will, but born of God.
14 The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his glory, the glory of the one and only Son, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth.
15 (John testified concerning him. He cried out, saying, “This is the one I spoke about when I said, ‘He who comes after me has surpassed me because he was before me.’”)

There are many things that Jesus has taught. His life is remarkable. No life in history has made such an impact. It is sad that people sometimes reject him, yet he greeted everyone giving everyone the chance to be changed by his love. Jesus handled the crowd very well. 
Matthew 19:13-15 (NIV)
13 Then people brought little children to Jesus for him to place his hands on them and pray for them. But the disciples rebuked them.
14 Jesus said, “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.” 15 When he had placed his hands on them, he went on from there.

Jesus would call the children and be surround by his disciples and children. It is best crowd pattern to keep control of the crowd. He didn't want to see the children sad or anyone hurt. So he let the children come and the adults had to do with the disciples. Jesus regulated the disciples on people seeing Jesus.
Jesus desired that they become children of God and seeked out us like lost sheep. He prayed for us and rescued us.It was fate for Jesus to rescue us, he fully adopted us into his family. It wasn't by human means but the fate of the cross that rescued us to seal us into his kingdom. His loving kindness won at resurrection.He was the only one who could fulfill the father's will to rescue us. He bought us with his blood to be given to the father blameless. We are white as snow sheep ready for the father's house. We live with the father as a dear child, being served from his table for food. Desire to be free like his son, who bore victory at the cross but instead we won't bare sin. We are already resurrected by his work. We just need to walk with him. He wants us to go with him to the next level. He wants us free and full of life.We have great freedom in him. I can declare freedom for you in him. Don't worry anymore, Christ has made you free. John the Baptist watched him surpass him in ministry because he knew who he was. Let Christ lead the way, he will make you more. We are adopted and led to more and more grace. He will use us to defeat the enemy and rise to grace and truth.As we see sonship we will do great things with the Holy Spirit.Know him well and you will do miracles for him he hasn't done before with the Holy Spirit. He will be greater through you than when you were before. His ministry is more than we could compare or comprehend. Just walk as his son and he rewards that everyday.
The word became flesh and lived among us. How great this is, we can walk his footsteps now in Israel. He will bring you close to his side in great intimate steps. Even if the walk is steep he will guide you down the path. He loves you and you will enjoy him. How great to be at his side. Your ministry would take off and never be the same. I know if Jesus came to me my ministry would never be the same. I hope I can see him walk with  me and declare his will. I love him so. I hope to walk with him as the Father walks with him in fullness.Our eyes are changed by his glory, may the Lord show me new eyes. I desire his glory, may it happen. Father lead us to your glory.
