Do We Need Teachers?
In 1 John 2:27 we are told, “But the anointing which you have received from Him abides in you, and you do not need that anyone teach you; but as the same anointing teaches you concerning all things, and is true, and is not a lie, and just as it has taught you, you will abide in Him.”
This is as significant as the Lord saying , “I will never leave you nor for sake you”
In fact Jesus tells us in Matthew 23:10, And do not be called teachers; for One is your Teacher, the Christ.
God wants us to constantly be dependent upon Him.
God in Christ is our Teacher!
So, If God is Our Teacher, Why Do We Have Teachers Given To Us By God?
This question is not unlike the question of, “If God has elected whom He will save, then why do we need to evangelize and preach and share the gospel?” It’s not that we are needed in this endeavor, it’s that we get to help by being involved. God makes it a special part of our being His people that we are blessed with the command and labor of being about our Fathers business. It is His business and we are His employees, His servants, indeed, even His slaves. We get to teach! We get to be involved! We get to work with Him!
