The question of who do you learn from troubled me. You see there are some people who I had heard teaching, whether in church or on video or whose work I had read whose ideas left me concerned.
We all know that there are plenty of ungodly sources of ideas out there. Often it is easy to spot them as unhelpful. However, one of my big concerns are the counterfeits or copies that are so like the real thing that it is hard to tell the difference between them and the real thing.
I was wondering who it was possible to trust. Then when I was reading the Amplified version of the Bible I came across the following verse in John 6:45.
“They shall all be taught of God and have Him for their teacher”
After I read that verse I wrote out this request.
Lord I want you to be my teacher. Yes, I do hear and read others but I want you to speak through them and show me yourself through them. Please use them to help me learn more about what you want me to become and do. Then empower me to follow you in all your ways.
I hope that you agree with me about this.
