People volunteering to serve God’s church are, first and foremost, still people. God did not grant humankind the power to rise above out of our own abilities. Ephesians 2:8-9 reminds us, “For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God— not by works, so that no one can boast. “
God places people in our community of believers to work as one part of a whole. When sitting in class on Sunday morning, we must recognize the divine inspiration in someone that has given themself for His purpose. We must also reflect on the power of the Holy Spirit in us to speak the Word directly into our lives, no matter what human mouth it comes out of.
We, too, have a purpose and a place we are called to in God’s church. As we review these 10 Myths about Sunday School Teachers, let’s think about what we are doing to hold them, and ourselves, accountable to work as the church family God designed us to be—dependent upon Him, completely.
