Are You a Teacher?

Hosea 3:1-5

The religious leaders of the day were not doing their job. Because they were failing miserably in their responsibilities Hosea is charged to call them back. The spiritual life and well-being of others is impacted positively or negatively by our faithfulness, or lack thereof, to God.

Chances are there are people in our lives whose only knowledge of God is from listening to us and watching our way of living. If they are “lacking knowledge” of God, perhaps that is the reason why God has placed them in our life. Are we doing our job or are we making the same mistakes as the priests to whom Hosea prophesied?

God wants to do more with our lives if we will just let Him. He has given us wisdom, insight, and knowledge of His saving grace. The mercy that we were blessed to receive, thanks to people who introduced us to Jesus, is a wisdom that we must now teach to others. May we live your lives in a way that people will not be “destroyed” from their lack of knowledge about Jesus, but come to a saving “knowledge” of Him as their Lord.

    Any teacher has an extremely difficult task in relaying the importance of all the mandates of education, especially when children can’t even comprehend the reasons needed for knowledge and understanding. Thus, educators know that the routine steps of mandating listening and the following of instructions are a must.

    A personal school of thought has the elementary teaching techniques of learning to spell coordinating with the part of the program that helps us mature in THE WORD. For example: First, one must HEAR The Word, then SPEAK The Word and SOUND OUT the letters of The Word with proper actions (while repetitively WRITING The Word within one’s heart)
    Assignments (stresses) upon the heart require the following of the Holy Spirit and test the quality of our religious teachers and the absorption of THE WORD within the students. Proper counsel and handling of those stresses allow the Holy Spirit to teach the meaning and proper usage of THE WORD.

    As with learning how to spell, there is a certain amount of trial and error that occurs. Therefore, we are to live by “faith” not by sight (2 Corinthians 5:7); however, the pure in heart are blessed with seeing the awesomeness of God (Matthew 5:8).
