Real Life with Pastor Steve
May 6, 2022
One of the best forms of teaching is… modeling by example. One of the best forms of learning is… following that example.
Coaches model certain skills for players to imitate and implement. Math and science teachers give examples of how to solve a particular problem. Music teachers… dance instructors… art instructors … model, and students follow. Those in the skilled trades – like plumbers and electricians, become an apprentice before they become a “master.” There are several other examples, but there is a key to making this work… humility. The teacher must be humble enough to know that any one of their students could excel past them, and do even greater things than they ever did. The student must be humble enough to admit that they do not know everything. They must learn not only theory… but practice. They must humbly submit to a process… where replication becomes almost like “muscle memory.” So… did you know… that being a Christian follows that same pattern? The Apostle Paul tells us… “In your lives you must think and act like Christ Jesus.” He is our model. His love. His humility. His sacrifice. His honoring of His Father. His honoring of others, starting with His disciples. That’s a model worth following! And that’s …real life. ~ Pastor Steve – Eaglebrook Church
