Preaching the Word
- Written by Lon Lorton Lon Lorton
Have you ever read, then re-read a book that really had a hold on you? Of course, we all should answer that with a big yes – the Bible is one book we should be reading and reading and reading…until we realize that in reality it is reading us!
There is one other book on my mind right now, though, that I’m in my second reading on. It is good. It is good to the point that it is exposing me and the way I do ministry some 24 years into my ministry. The book is called “Mondays with My Old Pastor,” by Jose Luis Navajo. It’s not a book full of deep theology or new realizations of Scripture. Rather, it is simply an old pastor’s opportunity to tell a younger pastor about the things that matter most. One chapter is titled, Admirable Faith. It begins with this statement of the wise old pastor: “If you want a healthy and solid church, do not focus on what astounds but rather on what transforms. Preach the Bible.”
