A Disciple Is Not Above His Teacher
God was, is and will be – ABOVE ALL
The Lord has always desired that we be like Him and thus He created us in His own image and character, however sin marred our blessed creation and disfigured us-One such type of sin is Pride which falsely elevates us to a higher position-sometimes with the wrong pretense that ‘we are even above God.’
“A disciple is not above his teacher, but everyone who is perfectly trained will be like his teacher.”
Luke 6:40 NKJV
Falling prey to pride-Lucifer did this and fell from God presence, many so called God-men and God-women claim to be equal or above than the Lord God, thus falling in line with the doomed devil.
Often unknowingly our talents and achievements bloats us and we feel more than actually who we are.
Our role Model is Jesus Christ and He will be with us always helping us to follow Himself for that’s our blessed destiny, however often the devil pretends to give us a deceptive shake-hand and detracts us-as is mentioned about the Christian in the ‘Pilgrim’s Progress.’
We should remember we can never out-run Jesus, He is with us drawing us towards Himself more and more and we are always satisfied in Him.
Let us then be a true disciple of Christ and be perfectly trained to be like Him in everything-like our blessed teacher.
To be more like You is what I desire
O Lord my God, let me to be so,
Never let pride detract me from Thee
A true disciple of Christ, in me may the world know.
