Teaching

Teaching—Those gifted in teaching are able to deepen people’s understanding of God’s truths through instruction of Scripture and life sharing, enabling people to be shaped into the image of Christ.  Teaching is primarily interactive communication, whereas speaking is more one way.  An example of leading through teaching is helping a group of Christians to better understand a passage of Scripture (Acts 20:7-11). While it is possible that “teacher” was an office (e.g., Acts 13:1; Jam. 3:1; 1 Tim. 2:7), this study defines the gift of Teaching in terms of function.

Testimony/Example of How People Have Used This Gift:
Steve, medical billing manager, married, father of four teenagers--“Watching a person wrestle with a new concept and then seeing their eyes light up when that new found truth is finally discovered, is for me, one of the greatest thrills in life.
I have experienced teaching in formal classrooms, as well as one on one sitting around a dining room table or while driving in the car. No matter where I find myself, opportunities can be found to share a personal lesson learned or reveal a new biblical truth. I recently taught a class on ‘Becoming a Contagious Christian,’ and listening to people share stories of living out the ideas and principles that we were studying together was so rewarding. I remember sitting at McDonald's, sharing some french fries, engaged in a great discussion with my kids about how God always provides for our family and takes care of us in the most amazing ways. Then hearing them bring that same conversation up again weeks later, lets me know they're still thinking about God's great love for them. Priceless.”
