Learning From the Lord



Learning from the Lord

This is what the Lord, your Protector, says, the Holy One of Israel: “I am the Lord your God, who teaches you how to succeed, who leads you in the way you should go.” – Isaiah 48:17

Who would you love to be able to sit down and learn from?

I have some friends who have young kids who play baseball. I remember one of them telling me about how he was signing up for a camp where actual MLB players and coaches work with the kids to teach and train them in baseball. He and his son were soooo excited. Not only were they going to hang out with some of their heroes, but they were going to learn from real experts.

Things like this happen in all sorts of genres, where people will jump at the opportunity to spend time with and learn from the best in their field. Often, people will spend a lot of money for these opportunities and put a lot of time and effort both getting the opportunity and experiencing it.

The God of the Universe wants to teach you.

We’re talking about God, here. The one who created all things, the one whose wisdom defined and ordered our physical universe as well as our moral compass. He knows what is best for us because He created us. That’s who wants to meet with you and teach you.

God teaches us in a variety of ways if we are willing to listen.

  • God gives us His Word which teaches us about faith and life. He gives us the Gospel to give us faith and also teaches us about life, itself in books like Proverbs, Ecclesiastes, Psalms, and throughout the Old and New Testaments.
  • God teaches us by His Spirit. Learning from God isn’t just a class where you order a book and read it. God promises that His Spirit is with us and will work through His Word and prayer to teach and transform us.
  • God teaches us through His Church. In college, I loved studying with study groups. I learned a lot that way. The Church, among other things, is our study group. We learn from each other.
  • God teaches us through our lives. God’s school isn’t just about classrooms and books. He goes with us every day of our lives and teaches us through observation and experience guided by His Spirit and His Word.

Are you ready for the ultimate “learn from a pro” camp?

God is ready. He will teach you how to succeed and will lead you in your life. This isn’t a two-day experience. It’s a life-long learning experience.

Sign up, today! 😉

Dear Jesus,

You are greater than the greatest sports players and musicians. You know all things and abound in wisdom. Teach me Your ways.

Amen.

In Christ’s Service,

Pastor Kurt
