Preaching / Teaching has always been the joy of my life. Those early years, from the three or four grade, Donald and I would go over to the church and practice preaching. We would copy Dad. I can’t remember when I did not desire to preach, and study the Bible. Today fifty years later I am still learning, still love teaching the Word.
Of course, preaching as a Fundamentalist was not like preaching as an Reformer, or Evangelical. Therefore the training was not the same. Had I known the training that I could have received I would have taken the opportunity. But over the years, I am still learning this idea of teaching the Word. I love the process of learning the Word. I love the research. I enjoy the reading of other great men. I love learning the meaning of words in the Word that give a better understanding of the text.
I like preaching or teaching as a theologian. That is teaching the point of the text rather than preaching my point of view of the passage.
This ministry doesn’t get old. I loved teaching Wednesday Evening as much as I have in the many years I have taught.
I am thanking for the opportunity each week to speak from the Word to the people who come and hear me each week.
