Let’s look at the first part of verse 12. “For though by this time you ought to be teachers.”
The word teachers also means instructors. There will be, and for some of us the time is now, a time that God expects us to be able to teach others about the basics of being a child of God!
Some of the last words of Jesus before He ascended to heaven were, “Go therefore, and teach all nations.“ How can we teach if we don’t know? 2 Timothy 2:15 says, “Be diligent to present yourself approved to God, a worker who does not need to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.” I am so convinced that God is desperate to use us to reach people! Keep reading and filling yourself up with this “word of truth“ and asking God to use you. TRUST me! He will!!!!
