Do you,…the one teaching someone else, not teach yourself? This is taken from Romans 2:21. The apostle Paul wrote the above concerning some Jews in his day who had failed to practice what they preached. How different it is with pioneers today! They generally have many opportunities to teach the truth to others and conduct Bible studies. To do so effectively requires that they prepare for each study and perhaps do research to answer questions. A pioneer named Janeen explains: “Each time I have an opportunity to teach the truth to others, I feel that a deeper impression of these truths is engraved on my mind and heart. As a result, my faith is not stagnant but continues to grow.” And as we observe our Bible students improve their lives by applying Bible principles, our appreciation for God’s wisdom deepens. Isaiah 48:17, 18 tells us: “This is what Jehovah says, your Repurchaser, the Holy One of Israel: “I, Jehovah, am your God,
The One teaching you to benefit yourself, The One guiding you in the way you should walk. If only you would pay attention to my commandments! Then your peace would become just like a river And your righteousness like the waves of the sea.” That helps us, in turn, be more determined to continue applying these principles in our own life.
