Establishment

Establishment: The Teacher

The Teacher grounds. He is like the pinky finger. When the hand is made into a fist to pound or ground something, it is this finger that makes contact. The Teacher matures the body by establishing them in the Word. The Greek word for Teacher is derived from the same word as doctrine. The teacher establishes the body in doctrine. He speaks by the Spirit to evoke a response from the mind. This is the reason why most churches lack maturity because teaching is mostly absent from the body.
