Today's Devotional Insight...

In a Preaching magazine article on "The Preacher as Servant of the Word," R. Albert Mohler reminds us of the centrality of preaching in the minister's calling:

"I believe when the minister of the gospel faces the Lord God as judge, there will be many questions addressed to us.  There will be many standards of accountability.  There will be many criteria of judgment, but in the end, the most essential criterion of judgment for the minister of God is, ‘Did you preach the Word?  Did you fully carry out the ministry of the Word?  In season and out of season, was the priority of ministry the preaching of the Word?'

"This is not to say that there are not other issues, that there are not other responsibilities, or that there are not even other priorities, but there is one central, non-negotiable, immovable, essential priority and that is the preaching of the Word of God.  And Paul speaks to this so clearly when he states his purpose, ‘That I might fully carry out the preaching of the Word of God.'"]
