Topic: Preaching Verse: 2 Timothy 3:16–4:4
The Bible is not a book we worship. But it is a book that reveals to us the God we worship.
The word of God awakens faith (Romans 10:17), frees us from sin (John 8:22), frees us from Satan (2 Timothy 2:24–26), sanctifies us (John 17:17), empowers us for godliness (2 Peter 1:3–4), and gives us joy (John 15:11).
Preaching becomes true preaching of the word when the word is responded to. It’s this response that makes the preaching of the word worship.
When you come to worship, gather with eagerness. Be expectant and attentive to what God has for you. He has a revelation of himself that’s going to cause you to worship and cause you to grow in Christlikeness.
