The Sunday School teacher —a steward
“Give an account of thy stewardship.”
Suggested Further Reading:
2 Chronicles 34:1-3
I see nothing in the Bible that should lead me to believe that the office of the preacher is more honourable than that of the teacher.
It seems to me, that every Sunday School teacher has a right to put “Reverend” before his name as much as I have, or if not,
if he discharges his trust he certainly is a “Right Honourable”.
He teaches his congregation and preaches to his class.
I may preach to more, and he to less, but still he is doing the same work, though in a small sphere.
I am sure I can sympathise with Mr Carey, when he said of his son Felix, who left the missionary work to become an ambassador, “Felix has drivelled into an ambassador;” meaning to say, that he was once a great person as a missionary, but that he had afterwards accepted a comparatively insignificant office.
So I think we may say of the Sabbath-school teacher,
if he gives up his work because he cannot attend to it,
on account of his enlarged business, he drivels into a rich merchant.
If he forsakes his teaching because he finds there is much else to do, he drivels into something less than he was before;
with one exception, if he is obliged to give up to attend to his own family, and makes that family his Sabbath school class, there is no drivelling there; he stands in the same position as he did before.
I say they who teach, they who seek to pluck souls as brands from the burning, are to be considered as honoured persons, second far to him from whom they received their commission; but still in some sweet sense lifted up to become fellows with him, for he calls them his brethren and his friends.
Never look down on children’s work; it is a serious responsibility to teach them the things of God (James 3:1-2).
If it is your responsibility, thank God for the privilege and ask him to make you a faithful steward (1 Corinthians 4:2).
Sermon no. 192
5 May (Preached 4 May 1858)
If you are not a believer in Jesus Christ,
you can be accepted in to his kingdom.
I invite you to let him to make of you what He always wanted.
Marvelous God Almighty, I come to you in the precious name of Jesus, who died for me to make me free of sin, I want Jesus to enter in to my heart and make me free, I confess that He is the son of God. I ask to change my heart and to give me wisdom to understand your Holy Word full of promises of eternal value, not only to live on this earth, but to be expectant of my life in heaven. In the precious name of Jesus I ask.

“The true minister of Christ knows that the true value of a sermon must lie,
not in its fashion and manner,
but in the truth which it contains.”
