What Makes For A Skilled Teacher?

March 5, 2009

John MacArthur answers:

“The first and primary issue in teaching is do you live what you say?  Therein lies the greatest power the teacher has in his own pattern.  You begin…with example.  Skilled teachers set a living demonstration of their teaching for people to follow. I mean, that’s just basic.  If you teach one thing and live another, you are not a skilled teacher, you are a very unskilled teacher.  And people will not follow that kind of teaching.  You must pattern in your life what you propagate in your lesson.”

(John MacArthur, 1 Timothy 3:3 sermon)
