The Goal of Our Instruction

5:30 AM

Now the goal of our instruction is love that comes from a pure heart, a good conscience, and a sincere faith . . . 
  • Is your teaching based on a love for God and your group members?
  • Are you striving to keep your heart pure from the things that might distract, destroy, or detract from the message of the gospel?
  • When you stand before your group, do you do so with a clear conscience?
  • Is your faith sincere?
  • Is it your desire to lead others to embrace these same goals and outcomes in their lives?
Some have deviated from these and turned aside to fruitless discussion . . . 
  • Be careful not to deviate when teaching His Word.
  • Be careful not to create fruitless discussions that are based on shared ignorance. 
  • Be careful not to chase the latest fads, the most recent popular writer, or a book about the Bible instead of the milk and meat of God's Word.
They want to be teachers of the law, although they don’t understand what they are saying or what they are insisting on. (1 Timothy 1:5-8, HCSB)

Let's all make sure our goals for teaching the Bible are focused on the right outcomes and originate from hearts that are pliable to God's instruction. Measure the results by what your instruction is producing - love that comes from a pure heart, a good conscience, and a sincere faith.
