Plain Talk

In 1921, Dr. David Evans became pastor of the First Baptist Church of Kansas City and the leader of a men’s Bible class of 250 men. Two years later, 52,121 men filled the streets of downtown Kansas City with a banner proclaiming, “World’s Largest Business Men’s Bible Class.”

In an interview, Dr. Evans said he wondered, when he began, if it were possible to hold the interest of men in religious matters. He found they didn’t want technical theology, but instead, plain talk about the fundamental things of life.

The psalmist in Psalm 119:97-98 proclaimed, “Oh, how I love your law! I meditate on it all day long. Your commands make me wiser than my enemies, for they are ever with me.”

God’s Word has practical application for your work as well!
