2) to impart the knowledge of
John 6 v 45
45 It is written in the Prophets: They will all be taught by God everyone who listens to the Father and learns from him comes to me.
I was stubborn while I was growing up; I thought I knew everything that needed to be known. I never was an avid reader or studied anything enough to actually learn anything that I could use for my benefit. I knw everything, so naturally I made a lot of mistakes and bad choices. I learned right from worong from my parents. I learned how to treat people from my parents; to respect the elderly and people with authority over us. I was brought up in a good moral family with high worldly standards. We have to accept our best is not good enough in this world any longer. Our world and the shape it is in is all the proof we need.
I never knew God could actually teach me anything. After all we can't see Him, touch Him or talk to Him like we do everyone else. Now I am stubborn for Him instead of being stubborn for my own wisdom or understanding. God is made of divine Spirit that can communicate within our Souls which is only formed for His Spirit. His Spirit within us is what makes our soul complete. We are taught right from wrong from our human standards, we will soon fall, human wisdom will only last a short time. Our wickedness can not with stand the world or the devil; we will always fall short of the finish line and finding our true selves if we count on human wisdom or human knowledge. For us to be complete we are seeking to be taught by God through Jesus Christ. We are all born with a spirit of being Holy, but we also are born with a spirit of darkness that is fighting hard for our independence from God. Remember, being Holy means separate for God, not from God. O For us to be complete we are seeking to be taught by God. With God teaching us we can truly live through any circumstance, through any struggle or suffering and doors will be opened. He can give us His strength, love, joy, peace, knowledge, wisdom, mercy, compassion, comfort through out our lives and even through death. We will be glorified with Him in Heaven if we seek always to be taught by Him. Who do you want to be taught by?
