It is about time we take a good look at JESUS as we pray through Him to the Father.He is the Son of God,yet also the Son of Man,but He was not subject to the traditions of Human beings,that is why He taught us how to pray.Jesus is not Catholic. Jesus is not Orthodox. Jesus is not Protestant. Jesus is not Born Again. Jesus is not Nondenominational. Jesus is GOD and more infinite love, mercy, justice, and good than any of us can claim Him.He is GOD.
Your post here is perfect truth,JESUS does not fit any category of human persuasion.He calls us to worship the Father in and through Him who knows His Father b e s t.No one knows the Father like He does,and that is why JESUS came to first be born,and grow up.He daily taught the Disciples,and He l e a d them.
The Apostles were sinful men who were slowly introduced to the Father by JESUS,and even when He daily walked with them and taught them,they reacted for the most part like sinful men.
When Jesus breathed on them the Spirit after His resurrection,than they began to respond with real faith.The Holy Spirit alone was poured out on them @ Pentecost,thus they were endued with Power.
It takes the Spirit of God to change us.
Spiritual life can only come from the Holy Spirit.WE need to be born-again,because we are born in the flesh,and although we may have unique personalities and are even religious,we do not know the MIND of God.The born-again experience we all need,opens the door to that realm in the Spirit,whereby we are SEEING Him rather than our limited lives in the flesh.
