Dr. Danny's Teacher-to-Teacher Podcast

Nov 27, 2020

  • Why?: As a teacher, do you ever feel like you are alone?
  • What?: In many teaching ministries, it is easy to feel isolated, to feel alone. We may not meet regularly with other teachers as we plug away week-by-week. If you feel alone, there is good news. It is recorded at the end of Matthew's Gospel. Immediately after giving the Great Commission to His first disciples, in the last words recorded by Matthew, Jesus assures His first disciples, "Behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age."
    The dilemma comes in reading at the end of Luke's Gospel and at the beginning of Acts that Jesus was then taken into heaven. If He promised to be with us and then was taken away, maybe all believers, including teachers, have cause to feel alone.
    Well, we're not! Jesus promised to send His Holy Spirit to indwell us so that we have God present in us as believers. But, how is that Jesus being with us? Perhaps the answer is the church. Consider that the Spirit unites all believers as one church and that united church is called "the body of Christ" a visible body that we can see in local congregations of that one church.
  • So What?: We can legitimately say that Jesus is physically with us in the local congregation and spiritually with us in the Holy Spirit. We are not alone.
  • So What Now?: As a teacher, when you feel alone, remember that you're not. You have Jesus' promise that He is with all believers until the end of the age.
