How? You may ask. Because he was the GUST CENTER. Corny, I know, but stick with me.
He was Goal oriented. He knew what needed to be done and how to do it. He was Understood by all abilities and styles. It didn’t matter how you learn you could understand what he was teaching you. He was Spontaneous in his teaching. He Talked about the easy AND the hard topics. He was Captivating in his storytelling. Everyone was loved, taught, and reached by him. He was Nonjudgmental. He was a Tradition breaker. He sat and taught outside. He used Examples of children to teach the parents how they should love and believe.And lastly, he was Relevant.
All of these aspects and so many more make Jesus the ultimate example of love, the ultimate model from which we should long to live but most importantly they makhim the master teacher. He was the one who knew what he needed to accomplish and did so not out of pure obedience but out of love, acceptance, and affirmation of the love, peace, mercy, and freedom that so many people are searching for.
So, as I stated before Jesus was the master teacher because he was the GUST CENTER.
Understood by all
Talked about the easy AND the hard topics
Everyone was loved, taught, and reached
Examples were made about children to teach the parents
So, next time you want to reevaluate yourself as a teacher, whether it be teacher of your own kids, a school teacher, Sunday school teacher, children’s pastor, whatever. Ask yourself if you’re being the best teacher you can be. Are you being a GUST CENTER like Jesus was? Or are you just in it because you have to be.
