Luke 6:40 Devotion by Stephen Taylor

Luke 6:40

The student is not above the teacher, but everyone who is fully trained will be like their teacher.


Burdens are meant to be shared, crosses are meant to be carried, and love is how they will know that we are His! Jesus is the Teacher, and we are the students. Everything He did, we should also do. It’s easy for me to get caught up in “I can’t,” instead of “He can.” The truth is I can’t do a lot of things. I can’t love the way He loves, I can’t forgive the way He forgives, I can’t even serve the way He serves, but what I can do is fully surrender my life to Him and allow the Holy Spirit to use me and to lead me down the path to be more like our Teacher.


Too often, I put unrealistic expectations on myself, and when I do, I fail. I bring shame and condemnation on myself, and the Lord is saying, “I never called you to do this on your own or do anything I wouldn’t do Myself. Rest in Me and allow Me to lead you down this path!” If Jesus wants us to accomplish something, He will make the way!!!


I encourage you today to rest in the fact that He came, He conquered, He rose, and He is alive and well in the heart of each believer and on His throne in Heaven, and He is coming again! It’s not our job to do things for Christ, but rather let’s do them with Him!!! It’s not our job to be the Teacher but to be trained by Him and for His glory!!!! We are all students of someone, so it’s up to us to choose the correct Teacher!!! Let’s learn from the only King who traded His life for ours!!!


Be trained, Be bold, Be humble, and most importantly, be found in Christ!


I love you all, God bless, and Glory to God, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit!!!
