‘… and learn of me’
‘Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me’
Friends this coming and following Jesus doesn’t just join us into an eternal union with Him, He also wants us to learn from Him day by day.
Jesus wants us to learn greater and greater depths of God’s goodness and holiness, justice and mercy.
Jesus wants us to learn from Him, from His life and example as recorded in God’s word and from the way He leads and teaches us.
God shines in the believer’s heart…
‘to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ.’
Friends, if we keep seeking we will never stop learning greater and greater depths of the goodness and greatness of God and the perfection of His ways.
When we follow Jesus we learn that God’s way is always best and that in Christ we have everything we need to live a life that honours and glorified Him.
‘But of him are ye in Christ Jesus, who of God is made unto us wisdom, and righteousness, and sanctification, and redemption:’
How quickly as believers we can walk in our own strength and wisdom and yet we don’t need to, Jesus by the Holy Spirit lives IN US!!
Friends, if you don’t yet know this truth may God help you to seek it until you find it.
And if the Lord has shone His marvellous light into your soul Friend may He help you to live remembering that Christ lives IN us and for what purpose we were redeemed…
‘What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own?
For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God’s.’
Matt 11:29, 1 Cor 1:30, 2 Cor 4:6, John 17:23,26, 14:16,
