Why?: How and why should you grow in your teaching
What?: God is the only perfect teacher. Jesus, God the
Son, taught perfectly in His earthly ministry. He sent God, the
Holy Spirit to teach until He returns for us. Like Jesus, the Holy
Spirit teaches perfectly. To be blunt, you're neither of them. You
ARE given as a gift by Jesus to the church. You ARE used by the
Holy Spirit to teach, but only as His instrument. And, every
instrument could be better…sharper…more effective.
So What?: So how do you improve?
One way to get better is to record your teaching and then go
through the painful process of reviewing your own teaching.
Another way is to have your learners critique your teaching. Did
they actually understand the truth you were trying to teach them?
Were they motivated to be transformed by that truth?
You might even invite other teachers or church leaders into your
classroom to give you feedback.
At TeachersOfTheBible.org, we have a list of questions that are
useful in showing you ways you can improve.
So What Now?: The question is, "Will you actually try
to improve?" Are you willing to receive feedback, even criticism,
in the spirit of helping you to be more effective? Every teacher
should want to improve. What will you do about it?
