Speak what you are commanded!
Jer 26:2 Thus saith the LORD; Stand in the court of the LORD’S house, and speak unto all the cities of Judah, which come to worship in the LORD’S house, all the words that I command thee to speak unto them; diminish not a word:
The challenge of every minister and leader: To speak fully the Word of God to the people we are required to serve, making it understandable and applicable to their lives, not holding back one word that He has given to speak, nor adding one word or interpretation of what WE think people should do with what they have heard.
The challenge we all face after the weekend, is to consistently keep speaking the word the Lord gave us throughout the week, so that people can learn to actually do it, throughout their weeks –
2Ti 4:2 Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine.
Yet, daily, we must preach, if we are called to it, allowing the Word to do what only it can do: change hearts, lives, destinies, and nations.
Preach, speak, and teach the Word the Lord has given you, today
