✝️ The PURPOSE Of The PULPIT ✝️ (NEHEMIAH 8:1-8)
Is it a place for lecture? Is it a place for philosophical presentations? Is it a place for the exposition of personal opinion? Is it a place for religious monologue?
💎NEHEMIAH 8:8 GIVES THE CLEAR ANSWER!💎
💞THE PURPOSE OF THE PULPIT IN THE CHURCH💞
❣️To Promote the Centrality and Authority of the Word of God.
❣️To Preach the Precepts of the Word of God.(The pulpit is NOT the place for opinion, philosophy, secular thought, debate, business or any non-biblical event.)
💧The Pulpit is to be dedicated to the Presentation of the Word of God.
a. The Preaching of the Whole Counsel of God – Acts 20:21
b. The Preaching of the Gospel – 1 Corinthians 1:17
c. The Preaching of the Truth – 2 Timothy 4:2
💧The Pulpit must be empowered by the Holy Spirit – 1 Thess. 1:5
a. The Power of God without which the message is just a speech.
b. The Purpose of God without which the message is just opinion
💚THE PULPIT THAT IS EMPOWERED BY THE HOLY SPIRIT💚
– Will Evangelize the Lost
– Will Edify the Believers
– Will Exalt God
May God bless you.
