Jesus also told them this parable: “Can a blind man lead a blind man? Will they not both fall into a pit?
A student is not above his teacher, but everyone who is fully trained will be like his teacher.” Luke 6:39-40
All Scripture is God-breathed is is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the man of God is thoroughly equipped for every good work. 2 Timothy 3:16-17
Living our lives as followers—as disciples, as students—of our Lord Jesus Christ requires that we be enrolled in a life-long education process. And, I know for me, many of those lessons have often been remedial and repeated!
Living our lives as followers—as disciples, as students—of our Lord Jesus Christ requires that we embrace the truth that we must always keep a humble attitude and remain fully teachable to our Lord.
And as we learn and live in Jesus Christ—and the truth of His Word and the power of His Spirit—we are transformed and set free!
Through God’s Word and Spirit we are set free from the lies that deny God’s love and power in our lives.
Through God’s Word and Spirit we are set free to love others in powerful ways—through the forgiveness, kindness, mercy and grace that God has given to us over and over again… and teaches us how to give these to others…over and over again.
Living our lives as followers—as disciples, as students—of our Lord Jesus Christ does indeed fully train us and thoroughly equip us. It just happens to be a life-long education!
See you at the Graduation Ceremony on the other side of Heaven!
In love, peace and purposeful passion, Sylane
