“You call me Teacher and Lord; and you are right, for so I am.” (John 13:13)
Master and teacher. Jesus is the One to follow. He knows. We do well to turn to the One who knows, but the most important thing is to listen and heed what He says, because He is both Lord and Master. Here, once again, Jesus reminds His disciples that He is “I Am,” One of Trinity. The Lord God, Creator of the Universe, has come to rescue those who will follow Him.
Lord, help me to ponder and understand who You are and what You have come to do. You are Lord and Master; there is no other. With simplicity, grant that I would not just call You by this name, but would live life knowing that You are my Lord and Master and there is no one or nothing else ahead of You. Turn my heart to You that I may know life.
Thank You Jesus, Lord and Master, for leading the way. Help me today to see that You alone are able to lead me into this life that You have created. Grant that I would apply Your Word to my life and serve others as You have served me. Guide my footsteps this day to serve the will of the Father and do all to His glory. Amen.
