Teachable? – Part 4
Whether we would like to admit it or not we all have areas of our life where we have a wrong understanding. Our minds must be transformed but in order for that to happen, we must be pliable in the potter’s hands. In this series, we are going to look at what the Scripture teaches about having a teachable or humble heart.
Teachable: Is a person who is capable of being taught. It is a person who apt and willing to learn.
The Christian that is un-teachable has declared that they are walking in the fullness of the stature of Christ.
This series is designed to get us searching our hearts and minds for areas where we need to repent. In addition, when this takes place and we allow correction to come and respond to that correction with obedience we will see our relationship and faith with and in the Lord go to another level.
Prov 1:7 The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge, But fools despise wisdom and instruction. NKJV
Part 4 – Fear of the Lord is a must if we are going to be teachable. Fear means reverence, respect and piety. The fear of God. Used of a person standing in an exalted position, “standing in awe.” This is not simple fear, but reverence, whereby an individual recognizes the power and position of the individual revered and renders him proper respect. In this sense, the word may imply submission to a proper ethical relationship to God; the angel of the Lord told Abraham: “…I know that thou fearest God, seeing thou hast not withheld thy son, thine only son from me” Gen 22:12. The fear of the Lord opens us to all of the understanding or light of God. There is no weapon the enemy has that God has not already provided a solution for.
