A Heart to Teach – A Teacher’s Prayer (10)

As I was thinking about the next main topic of this series (the bounty), I was struck while doing my morning devotions. Reading through Paul’s epistles has brought me to the book of Colossians. Before beginning the book, I read the background information about the book provided in my Bible and was hit with the ...

A Heart to Teach – Service (9)

Since it has been a few weeks since the last post in this series, so let’s quick revisit where we’ve been. We have been looking at some keys for teachers in maintaining good classroom management.

THE CHURCH’S CERTAIN SAFETY – June 26

Good questions are very important, for finding their answers reveals to us important truths. And in Psalm 76: 4-7 Asaph, having made two powerful statements, asks a very important question. He writes, "Thou art more glorious and excellent than the mountains of prey.... Thou, even thou, art to be feared: and who may stand in thy sight when once thou art angered?" Or as our versification expresses it: Excellent and glorious art Thou, With Thy trophies from the fray; Thou hast slain the valiant hearted, Wrapt in sleep of death are they; When Thy anger once is risen, Who can stand in that dread day? He had written in verses 1, 2 that God is known in Judah, and that His name is great in Israel. Here, then, the church of our Lord Jesus Christ finds a tremendous comfort. For she is the Judah and Israel of today. No enemies of that church can stand before her Lord. Let them try to touch her, and He will be angry and come to punish in a way that they cannot withstand. They will be cast into the sleep of death. Although the believers know God in all His covenant blessings of salvation, the enemies of His church will know Him in His awful wrath, and in everlasting punishment, which they will taste fully. What a comfort for us today, in these days when the enemies of the church and of the truth are becoming bolder and bolder, and Satan tries through them to snatch our children away by craftiness, but also by bodily per¬secution. It may look at times as though the church cannot stand, and as though God has lost control. Do not for one minute think that! He is using the wicked, even as He used them to realize ...

 

News and Announcements

Why Teach? is meant to be an encouragement to our young people to prayerfully consider teacher. Just as Hannah prayed for a child whom she could give to the Lord to be a Godly leader for Isarel, we ask that Godly parents promote as much as possible to calling of being a teacher in our Protestant Reformed schools.

Our new website will only remain relevant with fresh, new material. Although we believe the site has a good foundation, it will soon flounder and go back to being irrelevant if we don’t put up new materials each week. If you encounter a book you can review, a hot topic you’d like to comment or reflect on, an article online that may be of interest to others, we would appreciate your sharing and helping us out. You can contact our Website Director, Mike Vander Veen via email to share your idea or materials or to learn how you can help.
