DoctrineEducational systems and school directors create, from time to time, various methods to evaluate the teacher, be it grade school or university. The methods vary, depending on the pedagogical philosophy.

By pointing out such things to the brothers and sisters, you will be a good servant of Christ Jesus, having nourished yourself on the words of the faith and of the good teaching that you have followed.
1 Timothy 4:6 NET

To be a good servant of Christ means speaking what people need to hear, not what they want to hear. It means teaching sound doctrine, not giving in to popular false teachings.

When used to refer to a teacher, the adjective “good” transmits the idea that he does his work well in God’s sight. The teacher is good when he faithfully delivers the divine teaching, not when he impresses or pleases his hearers.

This evaluation method will never change.


Trust GodWhat to do when things don’t seem to go as we’d hoped, when everything points to God’s promises not being fulfilled?

This is what the LORD says,
“Promote justice! Do what is right!
For I am ready to deliver you;
I am ready to vindicate you openly.
The people who do this will be blessed,
the people who commit themselves to obedience, …
Isaiah 56:1-2a NET

The people of Israel doubted God’s action on their behalf and asked what use it was to worship him. The church today must learn from their lack of faith, to discard the possibility of God not fulfilling his word.

Stay the course! Keep serving the Lord! Remain strong!

God is faithful. You also be faithful.
