The Bible is our spiritual food. But even if there are wonderful promises in the Bible, if you are taught that it has nothing to do with us, you may not ask God for those blessings. Therefore, we do need to know that the Bible is related directly to our lives.
We also need wisdom in order to apply the Bible teaching into our lives. In Ephesians 4:11, there are words of 'pastors or teachers', which shows that there is a close relationship between pastoring and teaching.
牧Moses' father-in-law, Jethro, advised Moses who was so busy with pastoral counseling to teach them. Many of the problems of the people rose out of the lack of 'teaching.
Therefore as Christians,we need to receive pastoral care and at the same time receive teaching, which helpto us to make a right choice based on the teaching. 。
