Subtle Trap

For those of us that lead others in the Bible, and that should be all of us, Hebrews 5:11 - 14, there is a subtle trap.  Studying for others.
Those who preach and teach to others, have to make sure that we meet with God as we study to teach others.
We work hard at lessons and messages.  We work to make sure that we communicate what we have found in the Word.  That is important.  But it is not as important as being transformed by our study.

We are exhorted to be ready to preach the Word, 2 Timothy 4:1 - 2.  But we are also told that we are to be transformed, Romans 12:2; and we are expected to apply the Word to our lives, James 1:22.

It is really easy to focus on prep to teach and speak and forget that the real assignment is to meet with Christ through His Word, and thus be transformed by the experience.

Don't forget.
