“The Results Of Training” By Kirk Hunt
A disciple is not above his teacher, but everyone who is perfectly trained will be like his teacher.
Luke 6:40 NKJV
As you train, you and others will see results. The more you look or act like the instructor, the better the training. The more we look and act like Christ, the better.
The goal is not to look or act like a great teacher, evangelist or pastor. Mimicking a Godly man or woman of God can be a great teaching tool, but that is not the point of your training. Your goal is to look like Christ. Your task is to find Him in Scripture and transfer His image to yourself.
God intends to place you in unusual circumstances so you can minister to the unique needs of the men and women you find there. No one else can. No one else should.
Despite never-before-seen circumstances and one-of-a-kind folk, God wants you to respond a very specific way. Like Christ. That is why your training has a very specific outcome.
The desired results of your training are clear and specific. You have the assignment, and opportunity, to respond as Christ would. Across the centuries, and across the globe, there is a specific way Christ would respond. What are the results of your training?
Think: My training enables me to become Christ-like.
Pray: “Lord, I will train diligently so that I can become like You.”
