What can I do to have the Spirit of the Lord with me as I teach?
A teacher of the gospel should humbly recognize that the Holy Ghost is the true teacher. You can become an instrument through whom the Holy Ghost can teach, testify, comfort, and inspire. The Holy Ghost will guide you in your teaching as you properly prepare yourself.
To teach by the Spirit, it is important that you have a testimony of what you are teaching. During the lesson, bear that testimony to those you are teaching, as guided by the Holy Ghost.
You can invite the Spirit to be with you during each lesson. Have class members offer prayers, use the scriptures during the lessons, share experiences with living gospel principles, sing hymns, and express their testimonies. Take advantage of every opportunity to help others recognize when they feel the Spirit.
