Preach

Don’t preach …

– to add to your sermon repertoire.

– to fulfill a book contract.

– to produce something for your blog or social media presence.

– to impress others with your wit, erudition, or folksiness.

Preach only to encourage and equip Christians, to woo and warn unbelievers, and to glorify God in Jesus Christ. “For I decided to know nothing among you except Jesus Christ and him crucified” (1 Cor. 2:2).

Outrage is in. Does that make it “inrage”?

Missionary

The Bible is a missionary book given to us by a missionary God. If our preaching, teaching, and ministries don’t reflect this, something’s wrong.
