From Andrew Murray, Daily Experience With God
“Why is it that, with Christ as our teacher, there is so much failure and so little real growth in spiritual knowledge? Why is there so much hearing and reading of the Bible, so much profession of faith in it as our only rule of life, and yet such a lack of manifestation of its spirit and its power?
“Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am meek and lowly of heart and you shall find rest for your souls.” (Matthew 11:29) Many have taken Christ as savior, but not as teacher. They have put their trust in Him as the Good Shepherd who gave His life for the sheep, but they know little about following the Lamb or receiving from Him the lamb nature.
This teachable spirit that refuses to know or do anything on its own wisdom is to be the spirit of our whole life, every day and all day long. It is said of the Holy Spirit who dwells in us, “He shall teach you all things” (John 14:26). If His whole life and work in us is a divine teaching, then we must have this teachable spirit within us.”
Sometimes we need to unlearn the wrong things in order to learn the right ones. His yoke is so easy once we humble ourselves and submit to His way of teaching us. May we listen in the morning to the voice that calls us saying “learn of Me and find rest for your souls.”
