Your Sunday Bible school looks to you for guidance

Sunday Bible school

Each week, millions of people attend Sunday Bible school so that they might deepen their relationship with God and learn how to obey him in the different areas of their life. If you are a teacher, your class will be filled with these individuals looking to you to help them reach this goal.

As a teacher, it is our responsibility to help listeners achieve this goal by learning how to deliver life-altering, transformational lessons. To do this, we need to transition from a teacher who simply teaches what the Bible says, to a teacher who fulfills the Great Commission by teaching individuals to obey the Bible.

The Sunday Bible school goal

Sunday Bible school The Sunday Bible school goal:
Go and make disciples!

Now, you may be thinking to yourself, "But, that is not the responsibility of the Sunday Bible school teacher. After all, all I can do is tell them HOW to obey . . . right?" That is a great question and one that takes all of chapter one in Teaching To Transform Not Inform 1 to answer, but to give the short answer, let's just look at the goal Jesus gives us as teachers in Matthew 28:19-20:

Go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them . . . and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you.

Notice, he does not commission us to teach them WHAT to obey or even HOW to obey. Rather, the command is simple, "teach them TO OBEY everything I have commanded you."
