Paul recognized God’s working in others was what led them into effective ministry. When we ready his letters to Timothy and Titus, we see that this was his goal. Paul had been very effective in developing a receptive heart in Timothy and Titus so they would receive divine instruction.
“But thanks be to God, who put into the heart of Titus the same earnest care I have for you. For he not only accepted our appeal but being himself very earnest he is going to you of his own accord” (2 Corinthians 8:16–17).
The reason why it was “the same earnest care” Paul had for the saints at Corinth is because it was the same God who worked in both Paul and Timothy even though Paul was Timothy’s mentor. We must accept the principle that if we are going to be effective in discipling others at any level of maturity and leadership, we first must want God to thoroughly teach us the principles we are going to teach others. We can never expect disciples we train to be any better than what we have allow the Spirit to form in us.
BE A LEARNER AND YOU WILL TEACH OTHERS TO LEARN. This will make you more effective as a teacher and you will have the joy of seeing others learn well.
