1 Timothy 4:11-16
11 Teach these things and insist that everyone learn them. 12 Don’t let anyone think less of you because you are young. Be an example to all believers in what you teach, in the way you live, in your love, your faith, and your purity. 13 Until I get there, focus on reading the Scriptures to the church, encouraging the believers, and teaching them. 14 Do not neglect the spiritual gift you received through the prophecies spoken to you when the elders of the church laid their hands on you. 15 Give your complete attention to these matters. Throw yourself into your tasks so that everyone will see your progress. 16 Keep a close watch on yourself and on your teaching. Stay true to what is right, and God will save you and those who hear you.

Paul is instructing Timothy who had been his disciple, but now was functioning as an apostle to the church at Ephesus. Paul had moved into the position of apostle years before after he had spent two years learning from the apostles in Jerusalem.  And it was in Acts that the disciples of Christ were first called apostles.  They had moved from a position of learning to a position of teaching.  This is the goal of all who come to know Christ as Lord and Savior.  Have you moved from disciple to apostle?  If not, what is holding you back?  If you are in Christ through His death on the cross, you are forgiven and should be learning what Christ lived while He was here on earth.  You should know what the Bible says and be applying it to your life on a daily basis. The next step is to teach it to others.  When you do this, you will be able to focus on the truth of His Word and lead others to know of His grace and love.  It is time to take what you have learned and lived and bring it to those who do not know Him.  No one is exempt from this calling.  And it does not always mean you are in front of the church or in a formal teaching setting.  It means that you have learned His Word and are living it and teaching it to others by how you live or by what you say.  Doing this, you will always be prepared for that one person the Spirit of God will bring before you who wants to know more.  Always be prepared to know what The Word says to lead someone to Christ.  He calls all of us to this work, no one is exempt.  So if you have been serving the Lord for some time now, go before Him and seek His wisdom on this and ask for the power of the Holy Spirit to guide you and instruct you when someone comes to you to know Christ.

Have a God Day!
