Jesus is the Message

Rod Shimabukuro


And he was teaching daily in the temple. The chief priests and the scribes and the principal men of the people were seeking to destroy him, [48]but they did not find anything they could do, for all the people were hanging on his words. Luke 19:47-48


Non stop teaching and instruction by Jesus. It seems to me that Jesus wasn’t just fulfilling a role of a teacher, but was in fact The Teacher - with a message that wasn’t just prepared for delivery. It was a message within Him. This message was really about Him - the Messiah. He was not just a messenger or teacher or Rabbi. He was and is the Message… the Messiah! When people were hanging on His words, I imagine people’s spiritual eyes and hearts seeing and hearing form the Living Word Himself!


My personal application is a prayer:

Dear Spirit of God.

Please help me to be a teacher of Jesus, the Living Word. May HIs message burn on my heart that I may teach with authority and Your anointing. Please help me to die to the pride of my heart - desiring to be a great teacher, to be applauded or recognized. May the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be fully pleasing and acceptable to You.


Thank you Jesus - for being my Messiah and for revealing the Message of Your life to me. Thank you for being destroyed by man in this life, to be lifted up by Your Father for my life!
