Teaching Like Jesus - Principle #2


Matt. 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."

Principle # 2 in teaching like Jesus is ----

Our ultimate Goal is to draw people into a personal relationship with God.

Let me quote from a statement I have that Thom Shultz has made. "[Jesus’] goal was to bring people into relationship or union with God. That made Jesus controversial than and now because the people of his time were looking for a kind of Messiah to relieve them of the political nasties that were going on there. But it’s not really what he was about. Even the physical healings that he did were a means to the ultimate goal of directing people back to a relationship with God.”

As we teach the minds of our young people, our goal should be to also reach their hearts. To take them beyond the intellectual issues of our class to the foundational need - their relationship with God. Teach English - live Christ - make connections. Teach Math - live Christ - Make connections.

Today - let your relationship with the Father open the door for others to join you.
