He taught them as one having authority (Mark 1:22)

Christ Was a Successful Teacher


Everyone gathered to listen to Him, they were astonished at His teaching. He taught what He lived: righteousness and holiness. A servant who has lived and experienced what he/she teaches is much more effective in convincing whom he/she serves. The experienced servant is more excited about his/her message, delivers it with greater confidence, has real answers to any questions or concerns, and so is able to lead his/her followers correctly, particularly through rough waters.


X  (John 7:38 NKJV) He who believes in Me as the Scripture has said out of his heart will flow rivers of living water.


X  (2 Tim 1:12 NKJV) For I know whom I have believed and am persuaded that He is able to keep what I have committed to Him until that Day.


X  (Psalm 34:8-11 NKJV) Oh, taste and see that the Lord is good Come, you children, listen to me; I will teach you the fear of the Lord.


How does a successful servant produce rivers of flowing water from his heart?
