Objective: Help Students Learn to Truly Worship

Jesus said, “the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth, for they are the kind of worshipers the Father seeks.” (Jn. 4:23)

Some Bible teachers will have little problem teaching the cognitive side of worship, doing little to bring in the balance of how our will and emotions fit into it.  Other teachers will lean toward the emotional side, doing little to bring in the balance of the mind’s role in worship.

God, however, looks for both a mental acknowledgement of who He is AND a heart felt response.

To disciple their students to truly worship, teachers must promote the balance of BOTH “spirit and truth.”  They can do this by modeling the kind of worship the Father seeks through:

  • taking a holistic approach to teaching wherein objectives target the mind, emotions, will, and physical being of students
  • building into the lesson opportunities for responding to truth, not merely discussing it
  • making worship a natural response to what is being taught
  • using Scripture to worship
