Are You Mighty in the Scriptures?

One of my former pastors preached an excellent Sunday school sermon on Acts 7 (Stephen’s sermon and death) last Sunday at Providence Baptist Church’s college ministry. This was one of his closing applications:

“Stephen had the whole Biblical narrative within his grasp at any moment he needed, and he was able to direct it (in) pointed application to his hearers. . .

Are you mighty in the Scriptures? If you’re not, you’re probably not going to be very bold in life. So the fires of this kind of passion are kindled over the pages of the Bible.”

What an encouraging line to hear! It makes me want to be mighty in the Scriptures! To preach at a moment’s notice the story of the Bible! To be kindled by the words of Scripture!

Thank God for the pastors of Providence. How I miss being with them and their teaching. I praise God for them.
