my mentor :: my pleasure

“A disciple is not above his teacher, or a servant above his master.  It is enough for the disciple to be like his teacher, and the servant like his master.  If they have called the master of the house Beelzebul, how much more will they malign those of his household.  So have no fear of them, for nothing is covered that will not be revealed, or hidden that will not be known.”  (Mt 10:24-26, ESV)

Jesus, master of the house, is called Beelzebul.

Jesus, master of the house, is called demonic.

Jesus, master of the house, is called Satan.

Jesus misunderstood.

“It is enough for the disciple to be like his teacher.”

Jesus was patiently willing to let the relevant to look irrelevant.

Jesus was patiently willing to let truth look like a lie.

Jesus, Son of God, was called demonic by man.

By man the Son of God was called demonic.

To man Jesus was irrelevant.

“It is enough for the disciple to be like his teacher.”

Touchy Christians…..

Touchy Christians everywhere…

Touchy, touchy Christians…

Touchy Christian fighting for your rights…

Touchy Christian fighting for your respect…

Touchy Christian fighting to be understood…

Touchy Christian fighting for your life…

Touchy Christian fighting to be heard…

Touchy Christian fighting to make God answer you…

Touchy Christian in such fear of what people think of you…

in such fear of the scabbed blood and dried flesh of the altar meant for your body…

for your mind…

for your will…

So sensitive…

So insensitive..

So discontent…

So dissatisfied…

“It is enough for the disciple to be like his teacher.”

It is enough to…

It is sufficient to…

It is satisfying to…

“have no fear of them, for nothing is covered that will not be revealed, or hidden that will not be known.”

True freedom, identity, purpose, patience, contentment, desire, release, rest, found in God, and God only.

“Rather fear him,

who can destroy both soul and body

in hell.”

(Mt 10:28)

“Only let your manner of life be worthy of the gospel of Christ,

so that you are…not being frightened in anything by your opponents.” (Php 1:27,28)

“For to me to live is Christ, and die is gain.” (Php 1:21)

Indeed Paul, my teacher, my mentor, it is enough for me to be like you.

God make this reality my pleasure.
