“Good Master.” – Matthew 19: V16
Beloved, Jesus is indeed my Master in both senses –
A ruling Master and a teaching Master. I am both His servant and His disciple. I delight to run upon His errands, and to sit at His feet. there is none good but one – that is, God,”
All the goodness of Deity shines forth in Him. I have found Him good, so good, indeed, that all the good I have has come to me through Him.
He was good to me when I was dead in sin, for He raised me by His Spirit’s power; He has been good to me in all my needs, trials, struggles, and sorrows. He is unspeakably good, never could there be a better Master, for His service is freedom, His rule is love. When He teaches me as my Rabbi, His doctrine is divine, His manner is condescending, His spirit is gentleness itself. No error mingles with His instruction – pure is the golden truth which He brings forth, and all His teachings lead to goodness, sanctifying as well as edifying the disciple. Angels find Him a “good Master” and delight to pay their homage at His footstool. Ancient saints proved Him to be a good Master, and each of them rejoiced to sing, “I am Thy servant, O Lord!”
Today, my own humble testimony must certainly I pray, be to the same effect of winning souls. I will bear this witness before my friends and neighbours, for possibly they may be led by my testimony to seek my Lord Jesus as their Master. O how I pray that this would be so! If they would but take His easy yoke, they would find themselves in a royal service that they would stay in for ever.
Prayer: Teach me O Lord I pray to be both thy servant and thy disciple. Amen!
JESUS LOVES YOU. Start your day with Jesus. Beloved, have a blessed day.
