Dana Clark is a missionary teacher in Bangladesh. She writes a weekly newsletter and the content is very devotional. This one centers around Jesus as being the Master Teacher.
“And Jesus, when he came out, saw much people, and was moved with compassion toward them, because they were as sheep not having a shepherd: and he began to teach them many things.” Mark 6:34
Jesus, the Master Teacher, provides an incredible example of us to follow. There are several steps mentioned in this verse that will help us to fulfill the command to “Go and Teach.”
- He came out – Jesus was at the right place at the right time.
- He saw – Jesus was looking, and His eyes were open to their need.
- He was moved with compassion – Jesus knew their heartfelt need and was motivated by love for them.
- He taught – He knew what they needed, and He began to educate them. The passage goes on to say that after teaching He met their physical need for food.
Love is the greatest motivator. I came . . . I saw . . . I fell in love . . . Now God has allowed me to teach and meet needs here in Bangladesh. What an awesome privilege and responsibility to follow the Master Teacher.
