A closer walk with our beloved friend.

The Preacher Must Be Taught.



“For the lips of a priest should keep knowledge, And people should seek the law from his mouth; For he is the messenger of the Lord of hosts. Malachi 2:7 New King James Version

Before giving any sermon or lesson in group study the preacher (that is another name for teacher) must be taught the meaning of the Scripture that is being reviewed and how to guide his sheep into putting the application of it into their daily lives. This is something that must be repeated lesson by lesson.

For me if the Holy Spirit does not open my eyes to what is to be learned for my personal life or to share with others in my writing I find it impossible to write two words in an article.

Now this is not the sole domain of preachers.

It is the same method that is to be applied in daily meditation of scripture of the individual.


Prayer: Please Jehovah KalEl (voice of God) guide me in Your divine wisdom so as to enlighten Your cherished children when leading in sermons, Bible study groups or when guiding others to You. I sincerely request this in the name of the greatest teacher Jesus Christ. Amen.

May the sunshine of Jesus’ sweet love bless you today and every day.

After faithfully serving the Lord in China for ten years as a teacher I have been called home to care for my aged mother who has numerous disabilities. As well I regularly do volunteer work visiting seniors in a seniors home. I love being in nature. I say the closer we get to nature the more we see Jehovah. We are blessed in this area with many amazing, easy to ride bicycle trails on old railroad lines that takes us all over Southern Ontario.

  1. Study all that the bible has to say on the topic you are reviewing. This helps with staying in scriptural context, and that helps with understanding more of God’s word. Good reminder…


    • I also like to read commentaries from those who have studied the Hebrew and Greek writing as many time that gives a deeper understanding of what is being said as well as studying the history, culture and customs of the time it was written in.

      • I can add nothing more to this! You are right completely here. Understanding a bit about the languages can help so much in bible study!


      • It open an amazing world of the Bible and make it so much more relevant to todays world and our personal lives.
