The Scriptural Goal of Teaching God’s Word
This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth; but thou shalt meditate therein day and night, that thou mayest observe to do according to all that is written therein: for then thou shalt make thy way prosperous, and then thou shalt have good success. – Joshua 1:8 KJV
What is the purpose of teaching God’s Word? Is it to just fill our minds with information? Or is it designed to teach and train, so we can DO?
When people observed to do the Bible a spiritual awakening always followed. When preachers just teach the Word, people slowly settle down in their pews and become nominal believers. The spiritual condition in this country will continue to degenerate until people begin to “observe to do” God’s Word once again. Our discipleship and Sunday School books could help get people back to “Observing to Do” God’s Word again and help bring revival.
