Every Teacher Learns

🔊Audio Version Here ☞

II Timothy 2:2 (NLT)
You have heard me teach things that have been confirmed by many witnesses. Now teach these truths to other trustworthy people who will be able to pass them on to others.

There was a man who was a great preacher of God’s word. He was well versed in the scriptures, was eloquent and bold and spoke with great fervency. One day, he spoke with such power and accuracy in a meeting. In the audience was a couple who listened to him as he expounded the truth of God’s word accurately. However, they noticed that he was lacking in a certain understanding and so, after the meeting was over, they took him aside and explained to him more accurately the way of God. Apollos was the man’s name and Priscilla and Aquila the couple’s names (Acts 18:18-28).

That Apollos could be taught pre-supposes that he had a teachable spirit. Apollos must have had a reputation for being one of the most anointed men of God, as we would say, yet, he was able to receive from this couple in his audience. Understand that it is pride laced in error that says that you can only be taught by those ‘above’ you. It is wisdom and healthy to always maintain a teachable spirit. A teachable spirit is a posture of heart that accepts that it doesn’t know it all and can be taught something by someone who knows it regardless of the person’s standing.

You could be a pastor, a fellowship president, an overseer, or a husband and father. These are offices and not a declaration that you have attained the pinnacle of knowledge especially in relation to those under you. Be ready to learn, be willing to be taught. Obstinacy is not a virtue and pride is not of God.

Declaration: I have a teachable spirit. I am open to teaching. I am willing to learn, I am ready to be taught.
