Examples of teaching by example

Posted by on Apr 22, 2010 in discipleship | Comments Off

So, in my previous post, I said that “teaching” in the NT sense includes telling, showing, and helping others do. As a friend pointed out, “teaching” also continues to the point where the one learning is also teaching others.

Note, telling someone how to apply (typically called “application” in a sermon or lesson) is just another form of “telling”.

Now, thinking of “teaching” as telling, showing, and helping others do, how would you teach these things?

  1. Trust (have faith in) God
  2. Love God
  3. Love your neighbor
  4. Make disciples

If there are other examples you’d like to include, feel free to add them.
