10 Practical Ways to Be a Spirit-Led Teacher
8. After class, don’t be in a hurry to leaveListen for the Spirit to guide your after class time. In my experiences, this has been when kids wait for others to leave and open up. Also, be sensitive to follow up with parents and other out of class ministry you should do this coming week.
10. Learn to allow the Spirit to help you identify things that need correcting or improvement on a regular basis. Ask Him to teach you why it needs fixing as well as how. To me, the Holy Spirit works in our lives like a spotlight- He shines or illuminates things that need to be changed. This is true in the classroom as well as every other area of my life!
I am so glad we have a Helper to lead us to be the leaders and teachers we need to be. Listen to your Guide. Your Helper is right beside you. Listen to Him, learn from Him, do what He says. You are not alone in the awesome task of teaching and training children to be fully devoted followers of the Christ, not just for now, but also forever. Every list of ways to make changes starts with desiring what God is speaking to you. Desire to be led by the Spirit like never before. Model this to those who serve with you. One of the best ways to encourage a certain kind of behavior in others is to be an example of that behavior and model it yourselves. Jesus modeled the Spirit-led life. He never ministered the same way to each person; He was led my God’s Spirit. We can be, too. It’s good news to know that same Spirit that led Jesus, the same Spirit that empowered Him and raised Him from the dead, lives and empowers us today! Thank God for our Helper!
