Our Teacher and Example | Week of January 11

Jesus answered them and said, "My doctrine is not Mine, but His who sent Me." (John 7:16)

From the sermon series: Looking to Jesus

On the second Sunday of the month we will reflect on Jesus Christ as our teacher and example. Jesus is our teacher, who conveyed to us in word and deed what God expects of us, never seeking His own glory but teaching the will of God and giving all glory to God. In the same way, the Apostles sent by Him are to proclaim the will of the Son of God, not their own will. Jesus is our example in His relationship to God, in the way He ascribes glory to God, in how He sets the right priorities, and loves His neighbor.

Jesus Christ is our example. His doctrine, which is never theoretical, gives us direction as to how a deep connection with God can indeed be made. If we orient ourselves by Jesus Christ and remain in fellowship with Him we will want to have a constant connection with Him. Let us do the same as Jesus Christ did and be obedient to the Father and cultivate an intimate prayer life. He gave glory to God alone when He said: “Our Father in heaven, hallowed be Your name…” (Matthew 6: 9 et seq.) Let us do the same.
