Be Teachable!

When I first entered ministry, I was very young. As Evangelist Junior Hill says, “I didn’t know an adverb from a proverb.” I had to be teachable because I had no experience to bring to the table. The older I got, the more I realize I still need to be teachable. 

Common sense tells us that older people can teach us things, but what about our peers and those who are younger? I constantly learn from those who are in different vocations, cultures, age brackets, etc. There is a high level of humility in one who is willing to submit to the fact that he or she can learn from anyone.

As you approach life today, stop and take time to learn from everyone around you. You might be surprised at what you will learn.

Author: Matthew Winters (The Comeback Pastor)

Born and raised in Portsmouth, VA, I eventually landed in upstate SC because when God calls I move. I gave my life to Christ in 1987 and surrendered to the call to ministry in 1997. I am a three-time graduate from Liberty University and Theological Seminary: BS in Religion (2003), the MA in Religion (Leadership concentration - 2006), and the Master of Divinity (Pastoral Ministries - 2013). I have served as a worship leader and senior pastor in Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina, and Georgia since 1996. After experiencing a divorce, God graciously gave me my wife, Jennifer, whom I married in September 2015. Between the two of us, we have 6 children. I am the Lead/Founding Pastor of Overcomers Church in Walhalla, SC, a church plant that is helping those who have been overcome by life to become Overcomers in Christ. Jennifer and I both love people and long to see them enter into a relationship with Christ and walk in the power of His Spirit. I pray that these thoughts I share will challenge and inspire you to greater heights and deeper depths for the glory of Christ.
