The writer of Hebrews tries to shake up his readers for faithfulness with these words: “you should in fact be teachers by this time” Heb 5.12.
Might this observation apply to you?
- Maybe you grew up in a home where God is honored.
- Maybe you attended a college where the Bible is taught.
- Maybe you’ve been a member of the body of Christ for some time.
- Maybe you’ve possessed a Bible for some time.
If so, and you’re not able to teach another person the gospel and open up the Bible to tell others what God’s will is, this phrase probably applies to you.
Some saints have the gift of teaching, but all of us ought to be able to teach.
So if the above applies to you, what are you going to do about it?
