I’m getting ready to preach on the Great Commission tonight. Already I’m feeling overwhelmed, defeated, and discouraged. I love teaching the Bible but the attacks that come can be so very exhausting.
If you’re a teacher of the Bible, hang in there. Be true to the text and faithful to your call. Opposition should be expected. When I don’t experience any spiritual opposition, I can be sure that I’m no threat to my opponent.
Jesus, help me. Prepare me to teach your word. Please anoint me to teach your truth, boldly and lovingly. I love you. It’s all for your glory.
