Teaching in the Savior’s Way: For All Who Teach in the Home and in the Church Introduction Message from the First PresidencyThis resource can be your guide to learn about how the Savior taught. As you strive to teach in His way, He will help you become the teacher He knows you can be. The Purpose of Teaching in the Savior’s WayThe principles described in this resource can help every gospel teacher teach in the Savior’s way. Part 1: Focus on Jesus Christ Part 1: Focus on Jesus Christ Teach about Jesus Christ No Matter What You Are TeachingNo matter what you are teaching, remember that you are really teaching about Jesus Christ and how to become like Him. Help Learners Come unto Jesus ChristNothing you do as a teacher will bless learners more than helping them know Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ and feel Their love (see John 17:3). Part 2: Principles of Christlike Teaching Part 2: Principles of Christlike Teaching Love Those You TeachWhen the Savior’s love is in our hearts, we seek every possible way to help others learn of Christ and come unto Him. Love becomes the motivation for our teaching. Teach by the SpiritAs you teach the gospel of Jesus Christ, you can have the Holy Ghost with you to guide you and to testify of the truth to the minds and hearts of those you teach (see Doctrine and Covenants 8:2). Teach the DoctrineYou can teach with power, as the Savior did, by teaching the Father’s doctrine. Invite Diligent LearningWhen we follow the Savior’s example, we invite those we teach to ask, seek, and knock—and then find (see Matthew 7:7–8).
