Job 36 reminds us that there is no teacher like God our Teacher. In truth, every subject you study should be compared with Scripture. Trying to learn any subject apart from the truths of the Bible can certainly lead you astray!
You shall speak to him and put words in his mouth; I will help both of you speak and will teach you what to do.
God is exalted in His power. Who is a teacher like Him?
"Teacher," they said, "We know you are a man of integrity and that you teach the way of God in accordance with the truth. You aren't swayed by men, because you pay no attention to who they are.
Who is God? God is our Teacher. The Bible passages shown above show three aspects of being a teacher. In Exodus 4, God is speaking to Moses assuring Him that He would teach Moses and Aaron what to do. In Job 36, the question is posed, "Who is a teacher like Him [God]? In Matthew 22, the Pharisees, when speaking to Jesus, acknowledge to Jesus that He is a man of integrity who teaches the way of God in accordance with the truth.
Have you ever balked at sharing your faith in Christ because you were afraid you would say the wrong thing, or you didn't feel confident in your knowledge of the Bible? Sharing Christ is not the same as giving a sermon or teaching a Bible class. Sharing Christ is just a natural part of living each day in obedience to the Lord. As opportunities arise, simply stating truths such as, I couldn't make it through a day without the help of God. God will bring the circumstances to past, and then, like He did with Moses, will give you the words to say.
Job 36 reminds us that there is no teacher like God our Teacher. In truth, every subject you study should be compared with Scripture. Trying to learn any subject apart from the truths of the Bible can certainly lead you astray! Remember, all of the laws of nature, principles of mathematics, and biological discoveries are all part of God's creation. He is the great Teacher who grants us the opportunity to grow in wisdom through His written Word, the Bible. Any teaching that contradicts God's Word is wrong!
Matthew 22 brings us to a discussion between the Pharisees and Jesus. The Pharisees did not know that they were stating the obvious because Christ is God, therefore everything He teaches is in accordance to His Word. As Christians, we need to pray that God will give us boldness to trust completely in Him without paying attention to the false ideas of people around us, no matter who they are. No teacher, professor, pastor, friend, governor, president, movie star, sports hero, or anyone else is exempt from the truths of God's Word. To the degree that they are faithful to God's teachings we should listen to them. The standard for truth is the Bible, no matter who we are.
Who is God? God is our Teacher. God our Teacher is the Alph and Omega, the beginning and the end!
