KP Yohannan: Look for Someone Who is Humble Yet Bold

KP Yohannan: Look for Someone Who is Humble Yet Bold May 24, 2024

WILLS POINT, TX — Amid the sorrow of millions of believers around the world after it was announced that K.P. Yohannan departed in the presence of God, we wanted to repost these thoughts from our founder, originally written in 2022 in response to a news media filled with heartbreak and uncertainty. Our prayer remains that his legacy will continue to inspire the Church to continue on according to the Great Commission we have received, being faithful to bring the Gospel to our generation, just as Metropolitan K.P. continuously urged.


In my journey with the Lord, I’ve found out that the surest thing in the whole world is just to follow Jesus and learn more of Him.

But how do we actually learn to follow Him?

As I experienced in my early years of serving the Lord, there is an empowerment in seeing someone else walk out what it means to follow Jesus Christ in the daily hardships and difficulties. It is difficult to start out on a journey of truly following Christ in what He says without seeing someone beside you actually doing it.

Having come from a tea estate Pastor Deepak Pradhan has a burden for the perishing souls in the tea garden. He wants to uplift the socio-economical condition of poor laborers. He has not only brought facilities like Jesus Well, Bridge of Hope, Sanitation Projects and Christmas gifts to the laborers and their children but he also cares for their soul and shares the message of love to them.

Most of us can think of people the Lord used to guide us in our journey with Him.

Perhaps you have your own mentors and spiritual heroes, just as I have mine.

If you have not experienced this in your own life, look for someone who has gone further than you.

Look for someone who is humble yet bold enough to follow Jesus at His Word, and choose to be discipled through the life you observe them living.

The kind of situation I experienced living in close community with other godly examples is, I believe, one of the best ways to begin walking out authentic Christianity.

But maybe for you, it is through the life of an author who is no longer living.

It could be one of the fathers of our faith or one of the desert fathers who sought God Himself above all else.

But whoever it is, ask God to give you an example of someone choosing Christ above all else.

And as you continue on this journey, keep in mind that our expectation of what we think God wants can have so little to do with His actual desires for us. So easily our steps to be discipled can become more about our own righteousness, which we seek to establish, instead of His.

As He was in the world, we must also be, and He was humble.

When Jesus described Himself in Matthew 11:29, He said, “Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart.”

As He lived, we should now also live.

So look to Jesus; follow Jesus and others who follow Him closely.

May the Lord use our lives to glorify His name.
