Good morning.

We cannot give what we do not have. This is particularly true when it comes to teaching. As followers of Christ our ability to teach is directly related to our relationship with our Father.

Right from the beginning God stressed the importance of His Word when He said, "Fix these words of mine in your hearts and minds ... Teach them to your children, talking about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up."

(Deuteronomy 11:18‭-‬19)

The gift of teaching is more than a good presentation. It is the ability to clearly explain and apply the Bible in a way that causes others to learn. Paul reminds Timothy "Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved ... who correctly handles the word of truth." (2 Timothy 2:15)

Peter tells us, "Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have."

(1 Peter 3:15)

For us to be effective in our Christian walk, spending time in the Word is a categorical imperative.

It has been said that if your intake is less than your output, your upkeep will be your downfall.

Let's go into the world ready to teach out of our relationship with our Father.
