Teach me Lord.

I salute all kindergarten teachers; they are absolutely gifted in teaching young children the foundational aspects of education. The first day of school for many toddlers is usually hectic, due to being exposed to an environment that they are not accustomed to. Honestly!! Kindergarten teachers have great patience and love to cater for these kids despite all the drama of trying to fit-in. So you drop your kids off to school and after some months, you realize your child knows how to write, read, differentiate many things and you are excited at how your child is making wonderful progress in school. At such a young age, children tend to make such positive progress because they have a willing teacher, who is ready to teach them the fundamental steps of education.
Today we have Doctors, teachers, business people, leaders and all of them, they had to go through a process of being taught the basic things to maneuver in whatever endeavor they are at today. A teacher is a very important person to the growth of any child, as they help the children to grow in basic knowledge to be great individuals. That includes you and me, we are who we are because someone made an effort to teach us something great that we did not know.
Using the above illustration, I just want to paint a simple picture of how as Christians, we need to rely on Jesus to be our teacher. The life of Jesus was exceptional; He lived what He taught as the son of God. Despite of falsely being accused by the Pharisees, the  Sadducee’s and being rejected by His own people who wanted Him silent, He was bold enough to accomplish His father’s assignment here on earth. How wonderful is it, to rely on such a teacher, to teach you everything that you require, to be the best version of you here on earth.
Look at this perceptive; He never attended any theological class at the temple as it was a requirement for any rabbi, yet all the world was his classroom. No degreed teacher has ever done anything greater than what Jesus Christ did. He was truly and absolutely the Master Teacher and the greatest teacher of all time. He equipped His disciples; He taught people everywhere He met them. He taught them at the seashore, on boats, He taught them in homes and even while traveling .Anyone that He ever met, He equipped them with God’s truth including robbers, prostitutes and tax collectors .His life brought the best of people who had an encounter with Him, what an amazing lifestyle he lived as a teacher. Jesus was simple, yet out of His unconditional love, He was willing to pour out His virtue to people far and beyond.
It’s my prayer that this post will impact you, to rely on Jesus to be your teacher in teaching you how to live your life, how to treat people, how to forgive, how to walk in faith, how to love, how to walk in wisdom, how to give, how to be a faithful steward or how to manage your finances, the list is just endless on how, He can teach you everything pertaining life . Trust me when I tell you, If the success of the students is the measure of the teacher, then no teacher will ever be successful as the one and only Master Teacher, Jesus Christ.

You might wonder how will Jesus be your teacher? It’s very simple

a) The first thing you need to do is, accept Him as your lord and savior, if you have not acknowledged Him as your savior.
b) Ask Him to be your teacher in everything you do.
c) Make a choice to speak to Him continuously and rely on His leading-He is your Daddy.
d) Trust What He says in His word and that means, read His word more often.
e) Have a teachable Spirit, be willing to learn and to obey what He instructs you to do.
