May 12, 2017 DESIRE TO TRAIN OTHERS
Many of us don’t believe we have the ability to train others; however, we have possibly been training for a very long time without realizing it. We train by our actions. We train when we show or tell someone something they don’t know. We train when we share something that helps another person. Training is about sharing knowledge to help others. Once we begin sharing, we begin helping. Once we begin helping, we are doing God’s will and our desire to train will increase as we continue to do God’s will.
Titus 2:15 “You must teach these things and encourage the believers to do them. You have the authority to correct them when necessary, so don’t let anyone disregard what you say.” (NLT)
1. Write down reasons you may not want to train others.
2. List the reasons God wants you to train.
3. Ask God to show you ways today to share His word.
4. Step out in faith trusting God to speak through you today.
Dear Lord, give us the desire to train others. We know You have given us much knowledge from reading Your word. You have given us much experience from applying what we have learned. There are so many people out in this world who don’t know what is right. We are by no means perfect but we do know we are to follow and obey You. Help us to reach out and train others and put our faith in You to speak through us so we can give them the right instruction they need. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
We are to share God’s word with others so God can use us to teach them according to His word.
If we are timid about sharing God’s word, He will help us when we step out in faith.
God wants us to share His word with others that will help them to better know Him.
We need to pray for the desire to train others in God’s word.
We are called to teach God’s word to those who know Him and to those who don’t know Him.
Proverbs 9:9 “Instruct the wise, and they will be even wiser. Teach the righteous, and they will learn even more.” (NLT)
When we take time to share God’s word with others, He is teaching them through us.
