What The Man Wants


"A student is not above his teacher, but everyone who is fully trained will be like his teacher" (Lk.6:40).

For a good learning climate to exist in a classroom, a student must know the expectations of his or her teacher. A teacher has to very very careful in laying out the procedures that will work the best for that environment to thrive. Plain and simple, Jesus is our teacher!. Though we will never be able to exceed Him, we must understand all of the things that He desires from us as His students. Though He does not stand physically before us, His teachings are made perfectly clear through the Word... First and foremost, He wants us to achieve disciple status. His last words to His disciples was for them to make disciples.... He first wants us to be His disciples so that we can learn from Him. "Take my yoke upon you and learn from me" (Mtt.11:29). Why? Lets just read on.... "For I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls" The first mark of a disciple of Jesus is that we are to be humble and gentle of heart. When we are willing to hitch our wagon to Jesus, we can allow Him to lead us in the direction that we ought to go. I like that rest part too... Through our discipleship to Jesus, we can find the very best rest that is available. Yes, even better than our favorite couch or recliner... Rest for your souls! Too often we are crippled by the cares of life and allow them to not only weigh us down, but dominate our existence. We often carry around the burden of wrongdoings and feel the pressure of guilt upon us. We seem to forget that Jesus is gentle and humble in heart.... We forget that in becoming His disciple that we will find rest for our souls... Clearly. Jesus the Master Teacher wants us to be His students. He wants us to learn from Him and to lighten our loads. It seems to me that this should be a no-brainer for us. When we take Jesus into our life and allow Him to be our teacher, we go down the path of life.... We learn the best way to live in this world, so that we can live in the next one. Lets do what the man wants....

Have a great day... Go about doing good.... Love mark Phil.4:11
