How can the effectiveness of the many tools for teaching God’s word to be evaluated? The number of baptisms per year is used by many, but there is a better measure.
God tells us His word will accomplish what He sent it to do. And when God’s word was clothed in the human flesh of the man called Jesus, he told us what he was sent to accomplish.
JOHN 12:48 “There is a judge for the one who rejects me and does not accept my words; that very word which I spoke will condemn him on the last day. 49 For I did not speak of my own accord, but the Father who sent me commanded me what to say and how to say it. 50 I know that his command leads to eternal life. So whatever I say is just what the Father has told me to say.”
Is Internet teaching an effective method? Using the number of Bible lessons taught as a measure, WEI’s teaching website reached the remarkable number of 10,000 Bible lessons/month during each month of 2014.
What’s next? WEI’s teaching website is capable of handling 10 times as many [100,000] Bible lessons per month, without any major revisions to its design, but we are limited by what current teachers can do.
Please, if you have been thinking about teaching, stop thinking and start doing. If you know a Christian who has the ability to teach and is willing to use computers, tell them WEI finds people every day who want someone to teach them God’s word and they often wait three or four days for a teacher to claim them.
As Christians, we have the lifeline for those drowning in sin. Let us throw it to them while there is yet time.
“Soon will the season of rescue be o’er
Soon will they drift to eternity’s shore.
Haste then, my brother, no time for delay,
But throw out the lifeline and save them today.”
