spend time preparing to preach

2 Timothy 4


Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine.

It is easy to neglect spending time studying the Word to prepare to preach. I can get lazy and waste time or entertainment or other things instead. But I should know that:

  • There's a real need, (v3a For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine...) and,
  • There's a real reward (v8a Henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness...).
