2 Week Bible Training for Thai CCC Ministers of the Gospel. Some of the books used are only available in English. So, guess who gets to “help the staff with their homework” each day…?
I’m not qualified by any standard of graduating from this and that place, so my job was not officially, “teaching,” but technically reading the English books before class, and then teaching, I mean, telling the staff what the books said. There you have it.
The first week we discussed the basis of systematic theology and the doctrine of the Word of God.
The second week was all about the Gospel and the foundations of it, and the response to it. The character of God, God’s standard for all mankind, our sinful rejection of our Maker, our sinful nature, and God’s righteous judgment and wrath towards us, the love of God at the cross of Christ, atonement, repentance, faith, new birth/regeneration, Biblical assurance of salvation based on the promises of God, the witness of the Holy Spirit, and the witness of new-creation life in us.
Basically, all the stuff that I teach all the time, and all the stuff I will spend a lifetime teaching – (as I spend a lifetime learning).
Praise God for the continued opportunities I have all the time to teach and preach Jesus. May these two weeks bring about life and ministry change – not just head knowledge.
