Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. ~ Matthew 11:29
The main point of today’s message is this: “Come to the Lord. Learn from the Lord. Take action and teach others so they can take action.”
When you put the Lord’s Word to practice, you can become the Lord’s disciple or even an apostle.
But you need to live as a counterpart of God, the Holy Spirit, and the Lord instead of being someone else’s counterpart. That is why you need to learn from the Lord and put it to practice. Only then can you live a life of becoming one with the lord.
Those who take action without learning from the Lord cannot take action in ways that are fitting to the Trinity’s heart.
The Lord was able to make salvation history because he learned from God and the Holy Spirit before taking action.
If you could condense the entire Bible into a short statement, this is what the statement would read: “Come to God, the Holy Spirit and the Lord. Learn from them, take action, and deliver what you have learned to everyone. By doing so, make disciples, make them become people of God, and make God’s history happen on earth.”
At this time, the Lord is telling us, “Come to me. Learn from me. Then take action. And then teach what you have learned to everyone. By doing so, you will make history.”
Unless you learn, you cannot do it
There is a saying, “It takes some knowledge to play the part.” To play the part, you need to go beyond your current understanding of things.
In other words, you cannot do something unless you learn. You need to learn to get out of your current understanding and domain.
People need to learn before they can become a pastor or a leader. Even the Messiah had to learn before he became the Messiah.
Those who do things without learning cannot lead their followers.
In the world, there are many who teach. They teach about religion, politics, and life. However, there is no one who teaches satisfyingly, perfectly, and completely.
That is why God teaches and sends a prophet or the Messiah during every era so that they can become the bodies of God who know and take action according to His Will.
When people work, there are things they do well in. But there are also many unnecessary things people do because they do them without learning.
You have to learn one thing at a time and do everything in a way that fits God and the Lord’s heart.
Even in your life of faith, you need to learn. Only then can you do it. And only then can you teach lives and lead them to the path of salvation.
The Old and New Testament
Christians learn while centering on Jesus. The people of the Old Testament don’t know the words of the New Testament.
Since the owner of the New Testament is Jesus, people can only come to know about it when Jesus teaches them.
The Israelites in the Old Testament learned the Law of Moses and thought that was it. But the Law was something God had carried out in the old time period, the Old Testament.
When Jesus came, people needed to learn the work that God was doing centering on Jesus. He was the Messiah of the new time period. Only then could they fulfill the salvation history of the time period.
However, the religious people in the Old Testament did not learn from Jesus. So they didn’t know.
In the end, they persecuted Jesus out of ignorance. They slandered him and eventually killed him by crucifying him on the cross.
Even now, those who do not know properly because they did not learn from the Lord frustrate him, torment him, and make him bear the cross.
That is why the Holy Spirit says, “Always teach them. When they gather, teach them and make them put the Word to practice.”
Even now, the Lord is the head. So you need to learn from the Lord and take action.
In the end, many people and religious groups have ended like John the Baptist. Those who know can help advance God’s history in the present age.
I bless you to realize just how tremendous and valuable learning and knowing is!
Those who don’t know end without knowing
You must realize how much you will resent not knowing. Learn the way of the Lord and the Lord’s truth.
Those who haven’t learned don’t even know even as a whole era passes by them. Each day they live is a sad day.
Now is the time when you need to rise up and shine the light of learning while running the good race. That time is now!
The Lord says, “I will teach you as I have promised, so learn.”
His teachings are eternal teachings, and they are perfect.
Those who haven’t learned are so frustrating that it is almost impossible to work with them. Rather than saying that you have already learned looking at the things you have done until now, you have to try learning again.
I bless you to learn everything about all aspects of life!
You need to learn the Word that pertains to your current situation right now. You must put it to practice and teach it as well.
You should pray more in order to learn, and ask the Holy Spirit to make you realize. The Holy Spirit has told us already, “Learn from Me. I will teach you.”
People should help God, but most people cannot because they don’t know how.
But if you learn, you can do it. If those who instruct lives teach people after learning thoroughly, they can also produce people at their level.
If you learn from the Lord, you will become a counterpart at the Lord’s level.
Everyone should learn and give glory to the Trinity during this time of resurrection!
When you learn, you need to learn properly and clearly
You should not learn with your own mentality. You need to learn with Heaven’s mentality and the Lord’s mentality. Then you can learn clearly.
Regardless of whether you started attending church a long time ago or just now, those who learn and then take action can do the work of the Lord even if they have just come.
There is a leader who has learned for over 50 years after being born into this world. He can do God’s work because he has learned and now knows.
Some leaders do things according to their thoughts while talking big even though they haven’t learned properly. That is why God and the Lord see them and rebuke them.
When parrots learn words, they mimic the sounds they hear exactly. No parrot can speak well if it hasn’t learned.
Everyone should learn.
Everyone should learn from the Lord, take action, and teach others. By doing so, I hope you will testify for God who holds knowledge and wisdom in His grasp!
I hope everyone can become people who learn and take action. I will post sermons online, so I hope you can learn through reading the Word.
Tips for preachers
Recently, I’ve heard that the preachers I have coached are helping their congregation connect with the Holy Spirit more, so they are happier.
In order to preach sermons in a fiery way, you need to do three things. You need to read the Bible and keep studying it, pray sincerely with effort, and you need the Holy Spirit to be very close to you.
So I hope you will make time to read the Bible, study it, and keep petitioning the Holy Spirit to be with you. The Holy Spirit is the Spirit who testifies for the Lord.
You will have nothing to say if you haven’t received inspiration from the Holy Spirit. You need to keep learning. Then you will have things you want to say.
I hope you can learn clearly from the Lord and take action. And I hope you will become an example before many others and teach them.
When new people come, you need to teach them thoroughly and properly. The first time people come to church is a very important time.
Don’t teach them in a boring way. Try to teach them in a fun and meaningful way, but still uphold the authority of the Word. If you do, they can realize about the Lord and take action.
Some people don’t know the Lord properly even though they’ve been coming to church for five years. This is because they haven’t learned about the Lord thoroughly.
You should not settle for shallow faith. Since you are taking action before God, you must do it with fear and trembling.
Learn well. Take action well. Teach well. Then God will continuously bless you wherever you are.
I bless you to have the Lord’s wisdom, understanding, insight, and brilliance to make God’s history more meaningful and beautiful.
