Jesus tells the disciples what is about to happen to Him. He is being very honest and very blunt about what is coming. Then in v26, He tells them—and us—that serving Him means following Him. In my mind, this is where the rubber meets the road. Jesus is telling us that following Him means going where He goes, living as He lived, and experiencing what He experience. In other words, it means following His example. In telling us about what’s going to happen to Him, Jesus tells us what it means to follow Him. Following Jesus requires a wholehearted commitment to Jesus. This passage shows us four characteristics of a wholehearted commitment to Jesus. These four characteristics will be true of us as followers of Jesus when we are wholeheartedly committed to Jesus. Speaker: Stacy J Ross. John 12:20-27. Series: Not A Fan.
