Are You Following These 10 Commandments for Bible Teachers?

Please print off this article by Sinclair Fergusen, "A Preacher's Decalogue" and study it -- it applies very well to Bible teachers like you!  He outlines 10 commandments to help preachers/teachers minister well:

  1. Know your Bible better.
  2. Be a man of prayer.
  3. Do not lose sight of Christ.
  4. Be deeply trinitarian.
  5. Use your imagination.
  6. Speak much of sin and grace.
  7. Use the “plain style.”
  8. Find your own voice.
  9. Learn how to transition.
  10. Love your people.

Outstanding!  Read and study this.

Good tips. I especially need to remember numbers 7 & 8. Another issue I have is dealing with people students who like to talk a lot during the lesson, whether or not it's about the actual subject at hand. I'd sure like to hear some tips as to how you or your readers deal with that.

Jeff, I have a whole audio on how to minister to "tougher to love" people, include talkers! I need to create an excerpt for you. Please give me a few days to work on this.
