Giving Ourselves to the Ministry of the Word

Series: Worship in Spirit and TruthScripture: Psalm 19:7-14; Luke 24:25-27, 31-32; 1 Corinthians 2:1-5; 2 Timothy 4:1-4
“Christians feed on Scripture. Holy Scripture nurtures the holy community as food nurtures the human body. Christians don’t simply learn or study or use Scripture; we assimilate it, take it into our lives in such a way that it gets metabolized into acts of love, cups of cold water, missions into all the world, healing and evangelism and justice in Jesus’ name, hands raised in adoration of the Father, feet washed in company with the Son.”
—Eugene Peterson, Eat This Book, 18
“God speaks to us: not only to move us to do what he wants, but to enable us to know him so that we may love him. Therefore God sends his word to us in the character of both information and invitation. It comes to woo us as well as to instruct us; it not merely puts us in the picture of what God has done and is doing but also calls us into personal communion with the loving Lord himself.”
—JI Packer
