DCLM Sincere Milk  13 February 2024 Devotional by Pastor W. F. KumuyiThe Timely Teacher

Topic: The Timely Teacher

Text: Luke 12:10-12

10And whosoever shall speak a word against the Son of man, it shall be forgiven him: but unto him that blasphemeth against the Holy Ghost it shall not be forgiven.

11And when they bring you unto the synagogues, and unto magistrates, and powers, take ye no thought how or what thing ye shall answer, or what ye shall say:

12For the Holy Ghost shall teach you in the same hour what ye ought to say.

Key Verse: “For the Holy Ghost shall teach you in the same hour what ye ought to say.” Luke 12:12


No! Mom, my teacher did not say so.” “Karen, is your teacher now wiser than me, your mother?” Karen’s mother asked. Children have great respect for their teachers. Most children seem to believer that the most intelligent and truthful persons on earth are their teachers. This may be because the teacher always has answers, whether wrong or right, to the child’s questions. Anyone will always be relieved to get someone who can give answer and clear his doubt. The teacher always helps.

Yet, your human teacher is not always with you. Beside this, she is very limited in knowledge and understanding. However, there is an all-knowing, ever-present Teacher. A Teacher Who always help when you are confused, frightened and know not what to say or do. With such a Teacher, you cannot miss the fact or go wrong. Jesus says that when you are threatened by the enemies of Christ, do not be afraid.

The all-powerful and all-wise and ever-present Teacher, the Holy Spirit, will teach you what to say. Therefore, whenever you are persecuted, afraid or confused, call Him in prayer. The Holy Ghost shall teach you what to say.

2. Repent now. "Repent ye therefore, and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out ...[for] if we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness " (Acts 3:19, 1 John 1:9)
3. Believe that God loves you and Jesus died for you. "God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet Sinners, Christ died for us" (Romans 5:8)
4. Invite Jesus into your life through prayer of faith. Jesus says, "Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me" (Revelation 3:20)
