It is written in the Prophets: “They will all be taught by God.”

Is it really possible to have God as a Teacher?

Jesus says it is.

In fact, when we listen to Jesus, we are actually being taught by God Himself.

Everyone who listens to the Father and learns from him comes to me. No one has seen the Father except the one who is from God; only he has seen the Father.
This is the great privilege of becoming a student of Jesus. Our Teacher is God!

Everyone in the world is listening to some voice. Friends, scholars, scientists, religion, gurus, or even their own thoughts… So the question is – Who’s Teaching?

Only a student of Jesus is listening to the voice of God and so has God as a Teacher.

Then why isn’t everyone in the world excited to become a student of Jesus?

Perhaps for some it seems too good to be true. They just can’t believe the Creator would have a personal interest in them. Have difficulty receiving and internalizing God's love.

Apparently some in Jesus’ day couldn’t believe in Him - They said, "Is this not Jesus, the son of Joseph, whose father and mother we know? How can he now say, 'I came down from heaven'?"

Those who become students of Jesus have come to understand and know that what He says is what God is saying.

I tell you the truth, he who believes has everlasting life.

Who’s Teaching?

  1. Maybe we should also ask: Who's learning?

    Most people I know personally that refuse to believe in Jesus do so out of selfishness. If God is God, and Jesus His Son, then by admitting that, they would then need to follow their teachings and not their selfish desires.

    Others I know have what one person said of himself "A demonic faith." As in, he believed as did the demons. He believed, and shuddered to think about his state, because though he believed he wasn't acting upon it.

    When we believe, we must do something with that faith - and follow the Teacher.

    What are we doing to be learners?
