Teaching others (1)

04 November 2020
‘They must learn to respect the LORD your God.’

In Deuteronomy 31, we read that Moses wrote down God’s law and instructed the priests and elders of Israel to gather all the people together and read the law out loud to them, so they could ‘listen and learn to respect the Lord your God and carefully obey everything in this law’ (v.12 NCV). Over the next couple of days, we’ll be looking at the importance of teaching and sharing God’s Word with others. First, let’s think about why we should do it. Jesus said, ‘Go and make disciples of all nations…teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you’ (Matthew 28:19-20 NIV). We have a responsibility to share the gospel with others, and we should be ready to share our knowledge of God whenever we have the opportunity. Deuteronomy 31 goes on to say: ‘Since their children do not know this law, they must hear it. They must learn to respect the Lord your God for as long as they live in the land you are crossing the Jordan River to take for your own’ (v.13 NCV). We might meet people who have never heard God’s Word before, or who have never understood the depths of His love for us, and we might be the only opportunity that someone has to learn and talk openly about God. It’s also important for us to help those who may be struggling to understand God’s Word, especially if they’re not as far along as us in their faith journey. Sharing what we’ve learned, or explaining something from a different perspective, might be the key to helping them take another step forwards in their relationship with God.

What Now?

As you go about your day, try to be aware of opportunities to tell someone about God. Before speaking to them, make sure you first ask God if it’s the right time for you to talk to them about Him, and listen for His prompting.
