“It isn’t the words that the pastor says that are so important, it is what God says to us through his words.”Today as I was listening to Alistair Begg he shared along the same lines. He expressed it differently but the idea was the same. The Bible calls it the foolishness of preaching.
(1 Corinthians 1:21 KJV) For after that in the wisdom of God the world by wisdom knew not God, it pleased God by the foolishness of preaching to save them that believe.Everything we do as believers in Jesus Christ is saturated in grace and the work of the Holy Spirit. When we listen, He speaks to us. When we read, He speaks to us. When we think, He speaks to us. This is why someone who claims he got nothing from church this Sunday is having a hearing problem.
