Rick Holland spoke at session 9 of the Resolved conference, teaching us how to have a relationship with Christ. He went to John 13 and 14 for the answer. Eventually Rick settled on John 14: 21. He preached on the way that Jesus gets eclipsed. Two things, disobedience and love of other things. Jesus calls us to obey for His glory and our good because we were made to have him, enjoy him, and sin never satisfies. Jesus also calls us to love him and not other things. He pointed out three things on what it means to love Jesus.

  1. Love see’s through the eyes of Faith
  2. Love connects knowledge and understanding
  3. Love evokes devotion and affections to Jesus.

We need to spend time mediating on Jesus and seeing him.
