Wednesday Mornings

I love Wednesday mornings. My regular routine is to lock myself in my office on Wednesday mornings, pouring over the text I plan to preach on Sunday. I read and read the text. I pray over the text. I write down observations of the text. I try to determine the meaning the author had when he wrote these verses. I consult commentaries on this particular text. I try to immerse myself into the meaning and detail of the particular passage of Scripture. It is one of my favorite times of the week. It is my goal to get 3-4 hours of uninterrupted study of the Bible.

There are other things I do in the preparation for my Sunday message. I have detailed the process of how I write a sermon in much more detail if you are interested. But Wednesday mornings is study text morning. I love it. 

I'm not sure what you are doing this morning, but if you think of it, could you pray for me as I interact with Ephesians 3:20-21. And while you are at it, pray for your preacher as he prepares this week for the message he will preach on Sunday. Pray that he will understand the text of Scripture he will be preaching on. Pray for clarity. Pray for immersion into the text. Thanks.
"Not to him who is able to do far more abundantly than all that we ask or think, according to the power at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, forever and ever. Amen." (Ephesians 3:20-21)
