Bible Teaching has an Important Objective

Bible Verses Providing an Objective for Bible Teaching

Bible TeachingSo Christ himself gave the apostles, the prophets, the evangelists, the pastors and teachers, to equip his people for works of service, so that the body of Christ may be built up until we all reach unity in the faith and in the knowledge of the Son of God and become mature, attaining to the whole measure of the fullness of Christ. (Eph. 4:11-13)

All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the servant of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work. (2 Tim. 3:16-17)

Therefore go and make disciples … teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age. (Matt. 28:19-20)

And the things you have heard me say in the presence of many witnesses entrust to reliable people who will also be qualified to teach others. (2 Tim. 2:2)

  1. I was teaching a lesson on Spirituality, when a statement was made about a test for your spiritual gift was mentioned. So I googled it and looked at several sites. I was led to your site and I took the test before allowing my students to take it. I shared my results with a student along with the definitions for each Biblical item listed. I will allow my students to take the test following Thursday’s lesson. I will read your linked material and with your permission, use what I find as I’m led. May God continue blessing you beyond your thoughts and prayers.

    • Praise God you found your way to the site to the spiritual gifts test. Helping students identify their spiritual gifts certainly is a part of the disciple-making process. I pray the material is useful to the building up of your class.
