The Spirit, Yes, and Study Too

Tuesday is for Preaching

How much time are you spending preparing to preach the word of the Living God? There is a minimum of 1970 years of cultural distanciation (look it up) between you and the cultural thought forms and situations of the Bible. How long are you giving to understanding the differences between then and now so that you can apply the Scripture now in ways appropriate and bounded by what the Scripture teaches?

You cannot preach with power without the Holy Spirit saturating both the moments in which you preach AND the moments in which you study. Make sure you are giving your best efforts to both the sheep that you serve and the Lord to whom you owe your service.

“Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved, a worker who has no need to be ashamed, rightly handling the word of truth.” 
2 Timothy 2:15
