THE COST OF DISCIPLESHIP

June 19, 2015

Friday

 

Luke 6:40

 

The disciple is not above his master: but every one that is perfect shall be as his master.

 
LESSON

 

Changing the figure momentarily, Jesus compared a disciple of His to a teacher. It is proverbial that a pupil cannot rise above his teacher in knowledge. The fact that some pupils do excel their teachers is an exception to the rule. The people whom the disciples would instruct in the truth that Jesus taught them would normally advance no further than the disciples. This was especially true before the widespread availability of books. Therefore it was imperative that the disciples pay careful attention to Jesus’ teachings about love and apply them. The progress of the disciples’ learners depended on it.

You can make a difference wherever you are everyday because you’re different. And you can say in any given moment, “What can I give?” I want to help you to find out what kind of a person you are in a given moment. The mediocre teacher tells. The good teacher explains. The superior teacher demonstrates. The great teacher inspires.

 

Memory Verse: 1 Corinthians 11:1
