“You call Me Teacher and Lord; and you are right, for so I am.” (John 13:13)
To rightly call Jesus our Teacher requires that we must be students; disciples; that we must first possess and forever retain a desire to learn and be taught. Perhaps the worst, if not the most dangerous, attribute of a professing Christian is to have an unteachable spirit. This because the titles of Teacher and Lord are inseparable. Once you have arrived to the place of being unteachable; knowing it all; no longer curious; entrenched in your thinking then you have become your own god. Thus, not only is Jesus no longer the Teacher, neither is he your Lord.
