When it comes to teaching, genuine Christians have a special responsibility. We are commanded to “make disciples of all nations . . . , teaching them.” [Matt. 24:14; 28:19-20; Ac 1:8] Within the congregation, Scripturally qualified men are to serve as “shepherds and teachers,” to build up the body of Christ (congregation). (Eph. 4:11-13) 'Women work together with men in spreading the good news.' (Phil. 4:2-3, CEV; Ac 18:26) All of us are urged to encourage fellow believers, and we can heed that admonition by using the Bible to build up others. (1 Thess. 5:11) All of us can share in saving some fellow brothers or sisters who may have begun to doubt. (Jude 1:3, 22-23) All of us are obligated to defend the truth. (1 Pet 3:15) What a privilege it is to be a teacher of God’s Word and to share spiritual values that can have long-lasting benefits!
How can you improve your effectiveness as teachers? Essentially, it is by imitating THE TEACHER the Apostle Paul. You may wonder, ‘But how can we imitate Paul?’ ‘He was an inspired author, who served as an apostle, given miraculous powers.’ Admittedly, Paul likely accomplished more than any other imperfect human. Nevertheless, regardless of your abilities, you can do your best to imitate the way Paul taught. THE TEACHER the Apostle Paul will discuss how you can employ all of his teaching methods.
