READ: Titus 2:1-10

For though ye have ten thousand instructors in Christ, yet have ye not many fathers …wherefore I beseech you, be ye followers of me.

1 Corinthians 4:15,16

Jesus taught the Word of God in the most beautiful and anointed style ever known to man.

His stories are remembered by little children long after they stop reading the Bible. His teachings are relevant two thousand years after He had given them. The things that Jesus said are read by more people, quoted by more authors, translated into more tongues, set to more music, and represented in more art than any other work by man. As someone said, comparing the teachings of Socrates, Plato and Aristotle to those of Jesus is like comparing an enquiry with a revelation!

Jesus told so many stories. I decided that I wanted to be a teacher like Jesus. I didn’t want to be anything new. The key to becoming a great preacher is to become another of the same kind. Just find a preacher whose ministry touches lives and learn how to preach by becoming the same as he is. Preach in the same way, teach in the same way and you will be very successful. Don’t try anything new because there is nothing new.

If the word you understand is “copy” then please copy, photocopy, photograph, replay, rewind, and repeat what they say and do, and you will find yourself becoming another of the same kind! The reality is that whether you do this deliberately or not, you are becoming the model of somebody. So why not choose and become the model of somebody you desire and admire!
