Lord, teach us

Monday afternoon we held the monthly meeting of the BGCT Communications Team, and we started by lifting some prayer concerns to God. Then we let God speak to us.

Mark 1:21-22 says: “And they went into Capernaum, and immediately on the Sabbath he [Jesus] entered the synagogue and was teaching. And they were astonished at his teaching, for he taught them as one who had authority, and not as the scribes.” (ESV)

It’s good to be reminded of the special nature of Christ’s teaching. Many of us have read His words, plus many words about Him, so many times that we forget the uniqueness, power and authority that they possess. At least I do.

I saw a note earlier in the day from Dan McGee, interim director of the BGCT’s Congregational Leadership Team, about the importance of spiritual formation. That got me to thinking. How, during this special time of the year, am I allowing the Holy Spirit to continue forming me?

Christmas is a good time to be reminded of the ongoing importance of allowing God to shape us, mold us, build us.

Lord, teach us.
