Preaching, Teaching, and Training

Pause for a moment to visualize a magnificent grand piano. Next, ask yourself, Why does it have three legs? Would you agree that each leg performs an equally important physical function? Without each of its legs doing their part, the instrument would be unable to fulfill its musical purpose. Just as a grand piano needs all three of its legs, a church needs the use of all three of its New Testament methods of communication: preaching, teaching, and training. Today, most churches are blessed with good preaching and teaching, but few have a Biblically based ministry of training. In many cases, this third New Testament feature of an effective ministry is either neglected or totally missing.
