Day Twenty One: November 21
teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.” Amen.
Matthew 28:20 NKJV
Ohhhh many times we like the disciples of old, when faced with a little wind of opposition, or some slight storm of lack, and cried out; Save us Lord! For we perish!
But there's the need to understand that Jesus has committed His presence to us. If the storms and the winds can overcome Jesus, then they can overcome us too.
However, there's an instruction given before the statement of commitment by our Lord. He here, told us to become teachers, to those of the world whom we have recruited to become His disciples.
But really, let's face it, what moral right do we have to teach His commandments if we're still transgressors of them ourselves?
Will your conscience not smite you when you're preaching the "judge not" sermon, and you're equally guilty of loving money?
What lectures can you teach, when you're busy laying up for yourself treasures on earth, and have an empty bank account in heaven?
It's important that we turn around and face the mirror of God's word, to examine ourselves, submitting ourselves as students.
And in turn, repenting in those areas where we are guilty, that we might be qualified to teach others to observe His commandments.
The effects of our repentance, may not be palatable, but we're sure to be filled with joy as we live in obedience to His instructions.
With this, we'll be confident in teaching, and also in riding through storms, as we have faith that He is with us always, even to the end of the age.
