To be “teachable” is a great advantage.
Christians we need each other… it’s impossible to grow in Christian maturity by ourselves.
We’ll stay babies if we remain alone but think that “we’re all grown up.”
The understanding that I need to learn from others is the first step in being “teachable.”
Unless a kernel of wheat falls to the ground and dies it remains alone.John 12:24
What does this mean? It means that when we humble ourselves and surrender our lives to Christ we are not our own people.
Our lives are His and His plan, for now, is the Church.
So what’s the Church? It’s not a place. It’s a people… together being built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets… to become a habitation for God in the spirit.
As we’re built together we grow.
