"And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth. Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen." (Matthew 28:18-20)
Somewhere along the line, we have forgotten the teaching that we should be teaching. If Jesus told the eleven disciples to go out and teach others everything they have been commanded, then teaching is one thing they should teach others to do. Teaching is a command and one we should take as a serious responsibility.
But, let's face facts, going out and teaching one on one is difficult. Just because something is difficult to do, doesn't mean that we shouldn't do it. In today's world there are many avenues we can have to teach others. I believe everyone should try to reach out and teach their own friends and loved ones, but let me present to you an additional option.
International Bible Teaching Ministries has a wonderful website. I have been a teacher there now for a little over a month. The way it works, is that someone comes to the website (you can direct them there and they can request you for a teacher) and takes the intro course. If they don't offer a name of a teacher then there is a rotation and they'll be given to the teacher at the top of the list. You grade their lessons and provide feedback. If they have questions they turn to you for guidance. You offer them Bible verses, or links to materials to help them with their questions.
My suggestion to you is this: Go there and take all the courses yourself. Ask questions about things you are unsure about yourself. When you are finished, offer to be a teacher. You won't regret it!
