I believe it is the responsibility of every believer to do as much as possible to learn about the ways of God because that is how we will be able to draw close to His heart. In His Upper Room Discourse, Jesus tells His disciples that they are no longer servants but friends (see John 15:15) because He knows that it is out of relationship we minister. He modeled this for us in His relationship with the Father. Jesus is inviting us into an intimate relationship between Father, Son and Holy Spirit, to embrace His mission and do what He did. In this place of intimacy we will find His revelation. John 14:26 says, “But the Advocate, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, will teach you all things and will remind you of everything I have said to you.” Through the Spirit, Jesus is with us, and His Spirit enables us to do the same things He did and more (see John 14:12). Servants don’t receive this kind of revelation, but friends do. The basis of supernatural faith is this revelation that flows from intimacy.
