Jesus’ self-perception


Jesus knew four things: who He was, where He had come from, where He was going and what He came to do. Jesus’ external act of loving His disciples was rooted very clearly in an accurate self-perception that gave Him a firm grasp on His identity, His destiny and His mission. It is not stretching the point at all to link these two things, to say that how we perceive ourselves in certain critical areas does nave a bearing on whether or not we can express love for our neighbor.
