For Those Who Preach, Teach
There is always a danger for anyone who is dealing with a lot of Christian material — Bible study and reflection or sermon preparation — that a familiarity can develop so that the text becomes something to study and comment upon, rather than the wisdom of God that must be applied and obeyed daily. The discovery of a wonderful truth can tempt the preacher or writer to sermonize about it rather than apply it: We can become those who challenge God’s people with God’s Word, rather than allowing it to impact us first. Paul encourage the Philippians to “put into practice” what they have learned. Elsewhere James paints a bizarre word portrait of a man who sees, on looking into the mirror, that some changes need to be made…but then he walks away without changing a thing. –Jeff Lucas
