"A student is not above his teacher, but everyone who is fully trained will be like his teacher."
I am blessed to have been taught by some excellent teachers. Not all were in a classroom. Many came over the years to mentor, encourage, and train me. Some were managers in the workplace. Others served alongside me at church. Still others were friends who modeled the reality of living for Christ.
Jesus was the Son of God who came to live a sinless life and die in our place to pay for our sin. His resurrection proved that He conquered sin, death, and the devil. But He was also a teacher. He showed people the heart of their heavenly Father and taught them how to live in response to the love and grace of a holy God.
God may be calling you to teach others without ever even entering a classroom. What skills can you share with the people in your life? It might be at your job, in church, or in your own family.
I will always be appreciative of those who taught me and invested their lives in me. One way I can display my gratitude is to be the same kind of teacher to others…while pointing them to the greatest Teacher of all.
2 Timothy 4:1-5
Who is God calling you to teach or influence? Share your skills and abilities and remember that you represent the best teacher of all!
