Those Who Teach

Good Friday morning to you! James gives a warning to those who teach the Word of God. They are held to a higher standard. He writes:

Not many of you should become teachers, my fellow believers, because you know that we who teach will be judged more strictly. – James 3:1 (NIV)

The teaching and preaching of God’s Word is so very important to the life of the church and followers of Jesus Christ. Those who handle it must do so with great care. Not only are we to be concerned with the Word itself, but those who hear it and who sit under our teaching. Hebrews says that the Word of God is sharper than a sword. Many have had their faith cut to pieces because the Word was handled incorrectly and wielded recklessly. May God have mercy on those of us who teach. May God give wisdom and discernment to those who sit under our teaching. May we all honor God and obey His Word faithfully until Christ returns.
