I recently heard in a sermon that the fundamental posture of a disciple is humility. A disciple is one who knows that they do not have all the answers or has it all together.
This captivated me because I hear people who are Christian but speak as though they have all the answers. If we had all the answers then we would not be disciples.
We would be the master.
I wanted to remind myself, that I am a disciple of Jesus. I am not Jesus.
And neither is any Christian I have ever met.
If you are looking to have all the answers, I wonder, Christianity might not be the best religion for you. We are a religion built on questions. We are disciples of a teacher who asks some of the most blunt questions I have ever been asked:
"Who do you say I AM?"
"What should I compare the Kingdom of God to?"
"Do you love me?"
"Which is easier: to say, 'Your sins are forgiven,' or to say, 'Get up and walk'?"
"How can Satan drive out Satan?"
"Who are my mother and my brothers?"
"Don't you understand this parable? How then will you understand any parable?"
"Why are you so afraid? Do you still have no faith?"
