The Spiritual Gift of Teaching

19 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 11:19

Train up a child in the way he should go,
And when he is old he will not depart from it. Proverbs 22:6


There are different kinds of gifts, but the same Spirit distributes them. 5 There are different kinds of service, but the same Lord. 6 There are different kinds of working, but in all of them and in everyone it is the same God at work.
1 Corinthians 12:4-6

12 In fact, though by this time you ought to be teachers, you need someone to teach you the elementary truths of God’s word all over again. You need milk, not solid food! Hebrews 5:12

1 Not many of you should become teachers, my fellow believers, because you know that we who teach will be judged more strictly. James 3:1

Our lesson this week will be about the spiritual gift of teaching. During my study I found several different ways to approach this topic. As you can see from the readings listed above, parents should be teachers, the Lord is the giver of the gift, disciples of Christ should grow in their knowledge to become teachers, and then the warning of judgment.

I hope to be able to develop this variety of approaches into a common thread of understanding by studying the letter to Titus. His teacher was Paul, and he taught him how to teach others. I hope we’ll be able to see some of this gift of teaching in all of us.

UP Men’s Bible Study
Men from all the congregations of the UP are invited to our Bible Study/Fellowship lunch on Tuesday, May 6th at 10:30 am. The study is being hosted by Escanaba this month. Patrick will be presenting the lesson.

Attended Nursery during the Sermon
Families with children age 4 and under are welcome to have their children join the other little ones in the nursery during the sermon. It’s hard for the little ones to sit still for the entire worship hour. This allows for the parents to stay in the auditorium and hear the lesson from God’s Word.

Christian Closet 
The Closet will be open to the community on Wednesday, May 7 from 10-1. We need to start collecting food items now for this event. Bring in some non-perishables and put them on the small table by the doors.

Coins for Christ
Every Sunday we have the children collect any coins or bills from the audience that will be set aside for our VBS Outreach which will be held on Saturday, June 28 and conclude during Bible class hour on June 29th. We’re planning a big picnic lunch after church that day for our guests and the whole church family!
