Note from Gary Sharp

SUNDAY SCHOOL
TEACHER'S HELPER

Many of the articles for teaching children are based on a book titled "Sunday School Teacher's Helper" written by Gary Sharp, Ontario, Canada.

"From a child thou hast known the holy scriptures which are able to make thee wise unto salvation" -- 2 Timothy 3:15


PREFACE TO THE SUNDAY SCHOOL HELPER

I would like to acknowledge the help and encouragement of several of the Lord's people who have helped greatly with portions of this booklet. The purpose of putting this together is to help Sunday School Teachers who have an exercise to make the truths of the Scriptures and of the gospel clear to the heart and mind of the children in their care. Many teachers have requested that we set out in printed form the guidelines and principles expressed here and we offer this with the intent that it be for the glory of God and the definite blessing of those who make the effort to reach "All the little children of the world!" I would encourage all Sunday School Teachers to note the verse quoted above. It does NOT say "Thou hast known the 'GOSPEL", but rather, "Thou hast known the HOLY SCRIPTURES". It is very important to see that it is through the Scriptures that God reveals His Person, His Character, and His ways with men. It is through the Scriptures that we understand how such a God would deal with us, who are creatures of His hand. To clearly present "these" truths is the work of the Sunday School Teacher who desires the child to be made "Wise unto Salvation".

May God bless you in your efforts, and encourage you as you thus labour for our Lord and Master in the little while "Till He Come".
