Daily Scriptures 5/15/13

Scriptures: Ecclesiastes 12:9-10 9And moreover, because the Preacher was wise, he still taught the people knowledge; yes, he pondered and sought out and set in order many proverbs. 10The Preacher sought to find acceptable words; and what was written was upright—words of truth. (NKJV)

Nugget: There’s nothing like being a part of church where God’s word is PREACHED & TEACHED. It’s a great feeling to be able to be a member of a church where both of these are occurring; we want to be somewhere where the word is being given to us in order for us to grow, to be fed, & to learn God’s word to face the issues of life & to be witnesses to those around us. I can say that my church is this type of church, & my Pastor is this type of Pastor!

We should all feel that our Pastor is the best Pastor there is (I know mine is)! We want a leader who not only walks the walk, but preaches the gospel of God’s word---someone who challenges us in our actions, thoughts, & growth in the Lord. When he/she preaches, you can say, “Ouch” because he/she is talking directly to you without even knowing it.

May you find this type of church family for yourself (if you haven’t already!). God will guide you there; seek Him & He will point you in the right direction.

Quote: “Give me 100 preachers who fear nothing but sin and desire nothing but God; such alone will shake the gates of hell.” -John Wesley
