But ye have not so learned Christ; If so be that ye have heard him, and have been taught by him, as the truth is in Jesus (Eph. 4:20-21 KJV)
In Christianity, the course we learn is called Christ. The Apostle Paul talks about learning Christ in the verse above. The central message of God to humanity that is being preached, taught, prophesied or instructed in God’s classes is called Christ. The Holy Spirit has come to teach the Church about the Son of the Living God.
Christ is being taught through different avenues. You can see this unveiled in the sixty-six books of the Bible. Though these books are so different, their central message is the Son of God. If you look at these books superficially, you may see stories of real people and some lessons we can learn. But these natural lessons are not the ultimate purpose of these stories. If you dig deeper by the Spirit, you begin to learn about God and His wonderful Son revealed to us through every book, chapter, and verse.
It is so disheartening to see the message of Christianity is being corrupted. The Spirit wants to teach you Christ. This is where your victory lies. Listening or feeding on empty stories or sermons might cause some excitement in you but will not produce any lasting impact in your spiritual life. Enroll in the greatest course of life, and become an avid student of the Son of the Living God.
What happens to us when we know( or see) Christ? See 2 Cor. 3:18.
APPLY THE WORD
Your life is a visible picture of your doctrine and the pulpit that is feeding you. If you are not growing to become more like Christ in your character and behavior, you are probably listening to emptiness no matter how appealing they may be. The proof of the authenticity of your doctrine or any teaching or a pulpit is the lives of those who hear or follow it. Be discrete and selective. Go for the pure and unadulterated word of God. Desire and pursue the sincere milk of the Word to grow by it.
Ask the Lord to help you fully enroll in this course of life taught by the Spirit called Christ.
