Learn of Me (29 December 2020)

Morning Encounter:


“Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.

Matthew 11:28-30.  King James Version (KJV)


We often refer to Jesus as Saviour and even as Lord. Some have discovered him to be a friend. But have you ever understood him to be your teacher? That's what people called him in his own day.  Trying thinking of Jesus as a professor, or even a life coach. 


Thank you Jesus that you want to be my teacher. Please walk with me and show me how to do life well. Coach me as I follow you, live with those around me, and learn to love myself and others. Amen.

Midday Meditation:

Seeing Jesus as our teacher is a radical perspective. How do teachers work? By loving their students, being an example to their followers, and even allowing them to fail. Where do you see Jesus doing each of these with his disciples?  

Evening Reflection:

If we want to be more like Jesus then we start doing the things he did. Watch how he lived his life, engaged with people, trusted God, went to parties, noticed people, and faced death. Start asking how he did all this and how we can get into training for living life to the full.
