Teaching Sunday School

Acts 28:30-31 "And Paul dwelt two whole years in his own hired house, and received all that came in unto him, 31 Preaching the kingdom of God, and teaching those things which concern the Lord Jesus Christ, with all confidence, no man forbidding him." I am really enjoying having my own Sunday school class. Brother Jones has split our class 4 ways (JH Boys, JH Girls, SH Boys, SH Girls) and last week was my first week teaching the junior high boys class. We are currently in the bus, but I told all three of them that my goal is we get so big that we outnumber Pastor's adult class. Anyway, we had a time and I'm really looking forward to what God is going to do through our class. It is really challenging me to look at how my walk with the Lord is and make sure I'm right with God. I don't think anything compares to being in a teaching or leadership position because you are forced to live what you teach if you are to maintain any credibility. These guys keep me on my toes and continually challenge me with their excitement and enthusiasm about the things of God. I can't wait until next Sunday!

Amen!! What a tremendous opportunity you have here. My husband and I once had the senior high and junior high boys and girls combined. Of course he taught and I kept attendance and such things. But then our pastor wanted us to separate and he taught the boys and I taught the girls. I didn't feel worthy or smart enough to teach those girls but God used me and I thank Him for what He did in that class through me. It was an honor to teach them as I'm sure you feel it is for you to teach those boys. Don't take it for granted and I'll be praying for you as you teach them.

Thank you so much. I too feel that I'm not the best person to be teaching them, but it is a challenge to me to keep myself right with God and make sure I am a good example to them. I think God looks for people who are available before he looks for those who are qualified.
