2Timothy 2:2 And the things that thou hast heard of me among many witnesses, the same commit thou to faithful men, who shall be able to teach others also.
Leaders training others to be leaders is the point of this verse! Paul told Timothy to take what he had heard from Paul and to find other men to teach.
The men he was to teach were to be faithful and able to teach others.
The cause of world evangelism suffers from our lack of applying this verse, maybe, more than any other factor.
We learn lots of Bible. We even apply it to our lives but we fail to teach others. Even when we teach others we limit them by not sharing all that we could. We do not really commit the message and ministry to them.
Many times we make the mistake of teaching the wrong people. The verse says to find people that are faithful. People that have obviously made the decision to honor and serve God with their lives.
Not only are they to be faithful but they are to be able to teach others. We are to be selective in who we commit so much to.
Now come the questions of the day:
Are you faithful to God? Are you able to teach others? Are you being taught? Are you teaching? Are you teachable?
