The political debates, political speeches and blogs have reminded all of us that we live during a time when every sound bite…..every sentence….even every word becomes enormously important.
Last Sunday I began a brand-new “verse-by-verse” walk through the Book of Acts. It was SO refreshing to start with Acts 1 verse one, and simply read through verses 1-14, and all along the way realize that every single recorded word would be the exact, perfect word. No reason for fear. No pressure to rewrite anything. No obligation to defend. Not even any pressure to agonize over cultural relevancy. Just get out of the way and read and proclaim each Word.
