Curtis’ Corner

December 9, 2018

It is great to have you with us this morning for Bible class and worship. This is a place where you can come to a greater understanding of God because we study and follow His Word. Our services are simple and designed to worship and adore God. We also have good Bible classes Sunday mornings at 10:00 and Wednesday evenings at 7:00. Teachers are often under-appreciated for the vital role they play in the wellbeing of our congregation. Those who go the extra mile to prepare biblically sound Bible classes are doing the church a great service. Teachers are listed alongside evangelists (ministers) and pastors (elders) as individuals assigned by Jesus, “for the equipping of the saints for the work of service, to the building up of the body of Christ;” Ephesians 4:12. Paul referred to himself as a teacher of the true faith, in 1 Timothy 2:7. Jesus was commonly the “teacher.” Of the 52 times the word “teacher” is used in the New Testament, 46 of them are referring to Jesus. The home should be the primary location for instruction in the Christian faith,… Let me repeat that: The HOME should be the primary source for Christian instruction. Our Bible classes support what parents are teaching and help children acquire a spiritually based understanding of why they each need their own personal relationship with Jesus and how to maintain that relationship when they leave home and eventually start a family of their own.  We have good teachers but we need more. Are you teaching Bible classes? If not, why not? Hebrews 5:12 says, “In fact, though by this time you ought to be teachers.” When we are babes in Christ, we need to be fed. As we grow up, we need to be teaching. We can teach you how to be a teacher. Teaching God’s Word is a privilege. Please pray about whether God could use you to help instruct our youth or adults in learning the Bible.
