Spirit And Life Devotional: Being Teachable

Must read

John 3:4 NKJV “Nicodemus said to Him, “How can a man be born when he is old? Can he enter a second time into his mother’s womb and be born?”

Nicodemus was a Pharisee and a ruler of the Jews. He was probably an old man. But there’s something admirable about him; most Pharisees of his day were proud and hated Jesus because He often spoke of things they didn’t know, of things they had no revelation about; but Nicodemus acknowledged the fact that there was a lot he didn’t know even as an elder, and he was humble enough to ask. The Scripture says that he went to Jesus by night, in other words, he inconvenienced himself in order to learn.

Peter was another humble and teachable man. He was an apostle of Jesus; he was with Jesus for over three years, learning directly from the Master Himself. Paul was not even converted until years after Jesus had left the earth, but that didn’t prevent Peter from learning from Paul. Apostle Peter actually wrote in his own book that Paul spoke of things which were sometimes hard to be understood, according to the wisdom given to him by the Lord. What a humble man Peter was!

You must have a proper attitude to learning. How long you’ve been a Christian is irrelevant here, there’s no one that knows it all. Especially when God has given you some revelations; Paul said that knowledge puffs up, in other words, knowledge makes proud, but love edifies: don’t become proud as a result of the little or so much that you seem to know, be open, there’s still so much that God is still revealing today, and He can use infants, if He chooses, to communicate those truths! So be teachable. God bless you.
