Who is your greatest mentor? Mentors help you to build and utilize the gifts and potentials within you to make a difference in your life and in the lives of others around you. There are many mentors available but one is the greatest of them all. This post reveals the best mentor you should have in life.
I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will guide you with My eye – Psalms 32:8 (NKJV).
Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For My yoke is easy and My burden is light – Matthew 11:29-30 (NKJV).
There are many mentors all around you, moulding your life consciously or unconsciously everyday. These mentors determine what you turn out to be: a success or a failure, a local champion or an international champion, a nonentity or a celebrity. People tend to search for mentors who will affect their lives positively and help them to achieve their goals and dreams in life. Nevertheless, all of them are not on the same level. Some are greater or better than others in relation to a particular individual or group and their needs. However, there is a mentor who is the greatest of them all. No matter who you may be, or your own peculiarities, He is the best mentor for you. His name is Jesus Christ.
Why is Jesus the greatest mentor?
1. He is your creator – Jeremiah 1:5
Jesus, as your creator (John 1:1-3), knows the purpose for which you are made and so, is in the best position to mentor you. He knows the potentials you carry and how best to harness them.
2. He has an awesome record of success as a human being – Hebrews 12:1-3
The Lord came with a purpose, which He pursued and completed successfully, and is now seated at the right hand of the throne of God. He encountered a lot of oppositions but He overcame them all unto victory, and so your ideal model.
3. He has an unbeatable record of successful mentorship – Acts 4:13
All His disciples that successfully went through His mentorship manifested the same authority and power. Their exploits could only be traced to their association with Christ. They followed His instructions, and they soared higher than their fellow-men.
4. He knows your weaknesses – Hebrews 4:15
The Lord is the ideal person to mentor you because He had gone through what you are going through and overcame all, and so understands your weaknesses and knows how best to overcome them.
5. He is the wisdom of God – 1 Corinthians 1:24
Wisdom is the key to great heights in life and Christ, being the wisdom of God, is the wisdom you need to forge into great exploits. Nobody knows anything better than God and Christ is the access to the manifold wisdom of God.
6. He is your ever-present help – Psalm 46:1
Jesus is ever ready to help you out and He is nearer to you than anybody else. One call in faith is enough to bring Him to your rescue. So, should you need help, advice, direction or guidance at any point in life, just reach out to Him in faith and He will answer you.
To know more about this great mentor, study the four gospels along with Acts of the Apostles. In the four gospels you hear the mentor teach and show you how to walk in all areas of life; you see what He is capable of doing and His mentorship of His disciples. Then, the Acts of the Apostles reveals the results of His mentorship on His disciples, how they went about replicating Him in thoughts, words and deeds. These books of the bible will bring out the greatness in you.
Also, Jesus mentors you through other books of the bible, He being the Word of God. The Word of God is full of wisdom words by which, if you adhere to them, you enjoy great success, honour, fame, total health, prosperity and longevity.
Jesus Christ is the mentor of mentors, as such should be your number one consultant. He will instruct you in the way you should go and guide you with His eyes (Psalm 32:8). His demands are not grievous nor heavy but easy, and He will come to your level to give you wisdom, knowledge and understanding (Matthew 11:29-30). Consult Him today and you will see great difference in your exploits in life.
Jesus is Lord!
Grace and peace of God be unto you.
