The Word

July 5, 2020

Intro:

Acts 20:17-38

      • Paul sails past Ephesus

(stages of goodbye, deliberately avoid some folks)

      • Attempting to reach Jerusalem by Pentecost
      • “The talk” - Dad’s letter to Jon
      • v 25 - Final goodbye
      • So here are Paul’s final words to the Ephesian church

CH Spurgeon - “Visit many good books, but live in the Bible.”

Billy Graham - “If you are ignorant of God’s word, you will always be ignorant of God’s will.”

Point: The Bible,God’s very word, is a treasure to be protected, truth to be preached, and thoroughly practiced.

I.Protect the Word - vs 28-31

        • From Additions
        • From Subtractions
        • Learn the word
        • Love the word

II.Preach the Word - v 32

          • the Whole word
          • to the whole world

III.Practice the Word vs 33-35

James 1:22 But be doers of the word and not hearers only

        • (noun) the actual application or use of an idea, belief, or method, as opposed to theories relating to it.
        • (verb) perform (an activity) or exercise (a skill) repeatedly or regularly in order to improve or maintain one's proficiency.

Francis of Assisi - “Preach the Gospel at all times.  When necessary, use words.”

Point: The Bible,God’s very word, is a treasure to be protected, truth to be preached, and thoroughly practiced.
