Teaching Like Jesus - Principle #1


Matthew 7:28-29 (NIV) - "When Jesus had finished saying these things, the crowds were amazed at his teaching, because he taught as one who had authority, and not as their teachers of the law."

Wouldn't you love for those who you instruct about God come away amazed and informed? I want us to consider three principles that can be gleaned from Jesus in His teaching methodology.

Principle #1: Truth is understood only through God's enabling. John 17:6a states - "I have revealed you to those whom you gave me...."

God calls us to instruct those around us with a Christian worldview. He calls us to teach them from His point of view. He calls us to teach. He, though, is ultimately responsible for who sees and who doesn't. When He enables one to see His Truth, they can't miss it.

We are called to be faithful to present His truth - He is faithful to reveal it to people. So, today, do your part and let Him work.
