Hebrews 5:11 – 14 tells me that all of us are expected to become teachers of the Word of God. James 3:1 warns us that we are to take that seriously. It has not been my experience for the past 40 years that the Church produces many teachers. Why is that?
I have seen many people express their passion and hunger for God’s Word. There are not many who follow through. Why is that?
In one of the business books I have read in the past few years – at this point I cannot remember which one it is – says something to the effect that we get the results the systems we put in place are designed to produce. So if we are getting poor results; the system is designed to produce those poor results.
If we look closely at the results our churches produce, what do we see? Are we satisfied? If not, what has to change?
There is an interesting blog post by an author I have begun to follow closely. There may be some application we can make in our churches.
