… rock solid dependency on God’s word…
When you choose to stand up and teach in front of others you need to know that you’re teaching from a point of authority with a firm foundation in what you hold true. These couple of verse provide a fantastic opportunity to remember how and why you choose to teach and share God’s word. Whether that’s through dance and movement or another avenue.
Let’s begin by breaking the verse down into 4 sections.
1.) ‘Pattern of sound teaching’ – rely on the word
God gives His word as a basis to build life from. It’s sound, sturdy and full of amazing values. If we choose to teach his truth it needs to come from a sound basis.
2.) ‘faith and love’ – love doing it through faith and love
Faith is relying on what you don’t see. Rely and trust that God loves you, carries and equips you to share with love.
3.) ‘Guard the good deposit entrusted’ – guard his word
Gods word is the best. He deposits in us a desire to share, and to do so knowing the full assurance of his word.
4.) ‘Help of the holy spirit’ – let the spirit help
There is always someone there to help and guide you. Let his spirit in and let it guide you.
It is such an amazing privilege to share Gods word with others. Enjoy doing it, and let God lead!
