Bible Teaching 164

Take With You Words

Isaiah ProphecyingJesus' teachings often included quotes from the Scriptures and in the following case directly from Isaiah 61.1 when he said, "The Sovereign Lord has filled me with his spirit. He has chosen me and sent me to bring good news to the poor." Teachers today whether in the Sunday school, fro the pulpit, in the classroom or during a counseling session have the completed Word of God, the Bible, and should generously employ Jesus' words in applying spiritual truths. In so doing, the Holy Spirit will take the printed, divinely inspired word and endue it with power in the heart and mind of the hearer.

A Letter to Read

Jesus Heals Blind BartimaeusSaint Augustine (354 - 430 AD) who was a Christian teacher in Roman North Africa once wrote, "Miracles are not as pictures, merely to look at and admire, but as a letter which we must seek to read and understand." In a similar way, the Bible story of the healing of blind Bartimaeus concludes with one of Jesus' special word teachings. He said to Bartimaeus, "Then see! Your faith has made you well." At once, Bartimaeus was able to see and follow Jesus, giving thanks to God. Jesus words here embodied spiritual power. The Word of God will still do the same for Christians today.
