Paul Harvey is quoted as saying, “The blind man is limited by his touch. The intelligent man is limited by his knowledge. The great man
is limited by his vision.”
Great teachers need to have great vision when it comes to teaching others. They need to be able to see the need in the students, and know
how to apply the Bible for spiritual transformation.
Jesus knew that people have anxiety over their lives. He offered faith over anxiety to apply to their lives.
Jesus asked His disciples who they believed He was. He valued their opinions.
With a request for water, Jesus used the interaction to teach the woman at the well.
Jesus goes to the heart of the problem of the rich young ruler and finds what really motivates him.
When Nicodemus came to Jesus, He allowed Nicodemus to “own the subject.” Although it was Nicodemus who asked the questions, it
was Jesus who provided the spiritual truths.
Not only did He teach the woman caught in adultery, but He also taught the Pharisees who were ready to stone her.
These basic steps can encourage any teacher to make the Bible come alive to their students.
Spiritual transformation is God’s work of changing a believer into the likeness of Jesus by creating a new identity in
Christ and by empowering a lifelong relationship of love, trust, and obedience to the glory of God.
It’s a matter of the mind. Romans 12:2 It’s a matter of the heart.
