The best way to learn the Word of God

August 5, 2013

I charge you in the presence of God and of Christ Jesus, who is to judge the living and the dead, and by his appearing and his kingdom: preach the word; be ready in season and out of season; reprove, rebuke, and exhort, with complete patience and teaching.

2 Timothy 4:1-2

I was meeting with a friend years ago who felt like God was calling him to be a Bible teacher. This guy was brilliant, and it was clear he had been blessed with the ability to communicate truth to others. He was hesitant, though, because as he told me, “I need to grow first in God’s Word before I share it with others.”

So I looked him in the eye and said, “Do you know who gets the most out of the messages I preach? It’s not the person on the front row. It’s me!” I went on, “I’m the one who puts the time into learning the Scripture before I preach it. And if I’ve done that properly, I’m going to grow more than anyone else.”

My point was that when it comes to the Word of God, you can’t give without receiving. In preparing to share the Bible with others, you’re going to soak it in yourself. This is true of the most seasoned teacher of the Word!

Now you may not be called to preach or teach, but all of us have the responsibility to share God’s truth. So equip yourself to share God’s Word with others. It’s the best way for you to soak it in as well!

Get the best from 2012 to be your best in 2013

Dear Friend,

While many pastors shy away from addressing controversial issues, I sincerely believe you need to hear straight, “bulls-eye” biblical teaching on many of today’s hot topics. Not only to grow in your faith as a believer, but to give winsome, compassionate answers to the hard questions our culture is asking.

That’s why I want to send you a special new resource today – my CD series called The Best of 2012.

This series contains 10 of my most popular and compelling messages from 2012, and it’s a resource that’s sure to help you in 2013 because it includes messages such as, “Are All Religions the Same?”, “Lessons on Leadership,” and “What Is a Christian?”

The Best of 2012 is my gift to thank you for your donation to help PowerPoint continue to proclaim God’s Word and truth ’til the whole world hears. So please request your copy when you give today.

Thank you!
