I love reading the Gospel of John. There is a certain intimacy between John and Jesus that you do not sense in the other Gospels. John is self-described as “The one who Jesus loved”. In John 13:23-25 we see the interaction between Peter, John, and Jesus, 23 One of them, the disciple whom Jesus loved, was reclining next to him. 24 Simon Peter motioned to this disciple and said, “Ask him which one he means.” 25 Leaning back against Jesus, he asked him, “Lord, who is it?” While Peter was not one to be timid about speaking his mind, he knew how close John was to Jesus (almost like the favorite child), so he asked John to ask the hard question of Jesus. The relationship that John has with Jesus is an example of what I want with Jesus; someone who is not afraid to lean on Jesus and know He has all the answers and loves me wholeheartedly regardless.
