Christian Education Principles For Teachers
Many people are aware of Christian institutions and schools around them, but only a few of them knows about the knowledge and skills imparted in such institutions. Even Christians who support the Christian institutions most of the time are not fully aware of the content and curriculum that Christian educators and trainees undertake. Christian education is similar to other educational disciplines. God intended that we continue learning about his creations so that we are in a better position to take care of it. We need to learn about Jesus and his teachings to spread the gospel from a position of information.
Christian education, just like other forms of education, help to bring a particular perspective on life. Successful Christian education is intended to shape how the bible is understood and how to disseminate the learned teachings and principles to the rest of the believers. The teachings could be on the origin of the universe and how human beings came about. It encompasses things like the purpose of life and what it means to lead a happy and fulfilled life as a human being. Christian education is essential for shaping the overall life of the individual so that they understand life from the Christian perspective.
As a Christian educator, you have to help your learners to grasp different perspectives of life so that they can make informed choices. Life from the very beginning is full of choices, and every decision that a human being make has consequences. You should always aim to enable your audience to see their lives from the lens of God’s truth, as revealed in the bible. The bible is the lens through which Christians see their lives, and it is the basis through which people can begin to make significant changes. The bible and specifically the teaching of Jesus Christ help to reexamine our lives and know the direction that we need to follow to lead a happy and successful life that is full of hope and purpose.
Throughout history, God has acted and dealt with distortions of His creation that was caused when Adam and Eve rebelled from instructions. The bible clearly says that he made human beings in his image, but the truth of the matter is that sin has distorted the image of God in us. We have gone away from God, and every time we give in to sin, that image deteriorates. Christian education teaches that even though we no longer have God’s truth in us a race, a plan for redemption has been executed.
The life, death, and the resurrection of Jesus Christ became a basis for reverting the course of humanity. It brought a new direction for recreation. We reconciled to God through Christ Jesus, and throughout our lives, we aim to be more like God knowing that the ultimate price of sin has been paid in full at the cross.
Christian education objective is to make believers accept God’s gift of salvation in Jesus, follow Christ’s teachings in their lives and purpose to let others see the light of the gospel.
