Luke 6: 39-40 And he spake a parable unto them, Can the blind lead the blind? Shall they not both fall into the ditch? The disciple is not above his master: but everyone one that is perfect shall be as his master. ~ As I was reading this chapter today I took note of the fact that Jesus, the son of God, would take time out of his life and set himself in prayer and communing with God. In other parts of scripture, we see him spending time in the synagogues in study and teaching the word. He said that he did nothing unless he first saw his Father in heaven do it.
If we want to be the salt of the earth, if we want to be the lights of the world, examples of Christ to a lost people, then we must be people of prayer and people of the word. If we don’t have understanding of how the kingdom of God functions, who God is, and his will and desires for mankind, how will we ever be able to show others? God is looking for a people in whom he can show himself strong. He is looking for a people in whom he can use to establish His kingdom in the earth. That is what Jesus did. He came to reveal who God was and to bring God’s will and kingdom on the earth. But if we don’t understand what it is and how to do it, we will never be effective and never see God’s plan and will for not only ourselves but our loved ones and the nations of the earth.
In James 1 it states that if any man lacks wisdom, let him ask of God and God will give to all liberally. Let’s not be the blind leading the blind. We don’t want to stand before God on judgement day with the blood of men and women on our hands because we didn’t tell them truth or led them down the right path. Let’s be those who have an understanding of who God is and his will for mankind.
