Discipleship: Part 10 Luke 6:40

Luke 6:40:

40 A disciple is not above his teacher, but everyone who is perfectly trained will be like his teacher. (NKJV)

My thoughts:

-Disciples are not above their teacher

-Blessed life comes by Being- having God like character

-Describes the type of character attributes listed in the Sermon on the Mount

-Luke’s version: Jesus focused on our attitude toward: circumstances (Luke 6:20-26), people (Luke 6:27-38), ourselves (Luke 6:39-45), & God (Luke 6:46-49)

-True Happiness= Faith in God, Love towards others, honesty with ourselves, & Obedience toward God

-Our outward words/actions need to show Christ. If they don’t, then our hearts don’t show Christ. We need to speak/show Christ whenever we can, not just when we are asked what we believe.

BEC NT-

We cannot lead others where we have not been ourselves, nor can we be all that our master is. The more we strive to be like Him, the more we realize how far short we fall. Nothing blinds a person like pride (“Lay Down My Pride”-J)

Believers do sin, but the witness of their words & works is consistently good to the glory of God. In terms of ministry, servants of God who are faithful will produce themselves in people who are in turn true to the Lord (2 Timothy 2:2)

What comes out of our mouths shows what’s in our heart
