Teaching for Changed Lives

The Goal for Bible Teachers

Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has gone, the new has come! (2 Corinthians 5:17)

Our goal as Bible teachers should be to see people's lives changed but specifically what needs to be changed?
 

   Character

From worldly, self-centered traits to godly virtues, the fruit of the Spirit (Col. 3:12-15; 2 Pet. 1:3-9; Gal. 5:22-26)

   Heart

From an impure, divided heart to a clean, fully-devoted heart (Ps. 51:10; Prov. 4:23; Matt. 22:37; Lk. 6:45; Col 3:23)

   Attitudes

From a proud, self-serving disposition to one of humility and servanthood not entitlement (Phil. 2:3-7; Eph. 4:22-23)

   Nature

From the old enslaving sinful human nature to the new Christ-like, Spirit-filled nature (Rom 7:5, 18, 25; 8:4-13; 13:14; Gal 5:1e-26; 6:8; Eph 2:3; Col 2:11-13; Col 3:5; 2 Pet. 1:4)

   Grace

From impatient, conditional, and unforgiving relationships to dispensers of His grace living in community and true fellowship with one another (1 Pet. 4:8-10; Eph. 4:22-32; Col. 3:15-17)

   Energy

From too weak and powerless to overcome to strong in the Lord and able to persevere even in suffering and opposition (Isa. 40:30-31; Eph. 6:10-17; 2 Pet. 1:3)

   Discernment

From ignorant and foolish to not just knowing the truth but also understanding it and being able to see its implications for life (Rom. 12:2; Heb. 5:14; Col. 1:9-10)
