The Core

What is the most important thing to do with one’s kids as a dad?  What is the most important thing to do with those whom God has assigned you to lead as a Christian leader whether you are a pastor or teacher?
What is the irreducible core of ministry to our kids and others?  Thoughts at DTTB.
This morning was reading Psalm 147:15 and as His wont, the Lord led me through several other passages:
  • Isaiah 55:11
  • Jeremiah 1:12
  • Hebrews 4:12 – 13
  • 2 Timothy 4:1 – 3
  • 1 Timothy 4:13
Do you see the pattern?  If we chose to we could add a whole bunch more.  The core of what we are supposed to do seems to be clear.  We are to get people into the Word of God.  Our kids, the people in our Sunday school classes, our small groups, our one on one times over coffee, Christ tells us several times that we are to abide, remain, continue, live in His Word.  There are other things that we talk about, sure.  But they are secondary and preceded by our sharing the Word of God.

Think about it for a second.  Given the opportunity to share what the creator of the universe thinks or what you think, which would be of more value to your kids or other with whom you meet?

We ought to be asking each other continually what the Lord is showing us in His Word.
