Teaching to Obey
TEACHING ALL BELIEVERS TO OBEY THE COMANDS OF JESUS CHRIST
- Jesus wants all believers to teach His commands. Mat 5:19; 28:20; Heb 5:12
- Obedience oriented teaching is biblical teaching. Mt 28:20
- Teaching all believers to do, not just learn, is the biblical way to teach. Ps 111:10; James 1:22-25; Luke 6:46
- Spirituality is not measured by how much believers know, but how much they obey. James 1:22-25;
- Our mandate is to WIN, BUILD, TRAIN, SEND. We are to win the most possible to Christ, (1 Cor 9:19), build their faith and love (1 Cor 8:1; Eph 4:29; Col 1:28-29), train them to win, build and train (2 Tim 2:2; Heb 5:12-14), and send them into the harvest fields (Mark 3:14). In Mark 4:29 the farmer literally “sends forth the sickle”. This implies that he deploys many harvesters. See also Luke 10: 1-3; Rom 10:14-15).
