You Can Teach the Easy Stuff
As we think about teaching others, regardless of our age, or the age of the one we plan to teach, we can convince ourselves that it is just too difficult, or the message is too hard to understand. As you think about this, consider the following.
Mark 15:16 – “He that believes and is baptized shall be saved; he who has disbelieved shall be condemned”. Grade Level 7.7 Just the phrase “He that believes and is baptized shall be saved”, as a stand-alone thought is grade level 2.3.
Acts 2:38 – “Repent and be baptized for the forgiveness of your sins and you shall receive the gift of the Holy Spirit”. Grade 10.
Acts 22:16 – “Arise and be baptized and wash away your sins”. Grade 8.
Acts 20:7 – “And on the first day of the week we came together to break bread”. Grade 6.1
Revelation2:10 – “Remain faithful unto death and I will give you a crown of life”. Grade 4.1
Mark 16:15 – “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to all creation”. Grade 7.5
As we look at the subject matter above written on a second grade, seventh grade, even tenth grade level, I think we must agree it is not beyond our ability or educational level. Don’t sell yourself short, you can be a teacher to the ones seeking the truth. Let me also note, that on the Flesch-Kincaid Grade Level Scale the total of Mark 16 is grade level 6.5. So now, don’t let one person’s rejection of God’s word prevent you from sharing the message with others. — Copied
