One of the greatest privileges of being a preacher is that I get to spend a week studying and digging deep into the riches of God's Word so that I can be adequately prepared to herald God's truth authoritatively and accurately.

This morning I spent 4 hours working & finalizing two sermons:

1. Revelation 3:14-22 - The Church of Laodicea — Don't be Lukewarm!

2. Amos 8 - The Worst Kind of Earthly Judgment — A Famine for Spiritual Food!

And God richly nourished my soul.

I echo the words of the prophet Jeremiah. He said: But if I say, "I will not remember Him Or speak anymore in His name," Then in my heart it becomes like a burning fire Shut up in my bones; And I am weary of holding it in, And I cannot endure it (Jer 20:9).

Geoff, we thank the Lord daily for His work of grace in your life..for giving you such a hunger for His precious Word and a passion to proclaim it faithfully, for your care for the sheep God has entrusted to your care, for your diligence in seeking restoration in fallen saints when they have wandered,for your commitment to being a godly husband/father/son. There certainly is no famine of the Word in your life!
