One night he went to Jesus and said, “Rabbi, we know that God has sent you to teach us. You could not work these miracles, unless God were with you.” – John 3:2 (CEV)
Have you ever noticed how the people the closest to you are often the ones you take for granted? Its easy to forget the things your mom does to help you out, or the way your best friend always listens to you. Sometimes, when you’re close to someone, you don’t take time to think about the things that make that person special. The same is true with Jesus. Its easy to get busy, and overlook all the great things that Jesus does for us. This Bible verse shows us one thing that Jesus does for us, and that is teach us.
Have you ever thought about the fact that Jesus is our teacher? This verse shows us that He was sent by God to teach us.
What does a teacher do? They show us things, instruct us, and make sure that we’re learning. That’s a lot like what Jesus does. He showed us the father God in the Bible. He helps us learn who we really are in Him.
So as you go about your day, don’t forget about the fact that Jesus was sent to us by God to teach us and help us grow!
