A student is not above his teacher, nor a servant above his master. (Matthew 10:24)

The meaning of this verse is that Christ Jesus is the Christian's teacher and master. And how does he teach us today? He teaches us through his Word, the Holy Bible. A Christian is, therefore, an obedient and trusting follower of the teachings of Jesus Christ.

Anyone who breaks one of the least of these commandments and teaches others to do the same will be called least in the kingdom of heaven, but whoever practices and teaches these commands will be called great in the kingdom of heaven. (Matthew 5:19)

The world generally scoffs at most of Christ's teachings and often persecutes those who follow them. Today in America our leaders generally attempt to force everyone to believe that one faith is as good as another. This, too, is just as Christ taught.

If they persecuted me, they will persecute you also. If they obeyed my teachings, they will obey yours also. (John 15:20)

How should Christians respond? Apostle Peter has some good advice:

If you are insulted because of the name of Christ, you are blessed, for the Spirit of glory and of God rests on you. If you suffer as a Christian, do not be ashamed, but praise God that you bear that name. (1 Peter 4: 14,16)
