Every word of God is flawless; he is a shield to those who take refuge in him. Do not add to his words, or he will rebuke you and prove you a liar.
~ Proverbs 30: 5-6
Have you ever wielded scripture as a weapon? Quoted a phrase to win an argument? Pulled out a verse or two to make a political statement?
Not cool. Not acceptable.
As Christian men who strive for integrity, we learn from God's word and apply it to our lives. His Word shapes us into living witnesses. Holy Spirit brings life into the story of God and us.
Be prepared to preach without saying a word. And when scripture is necessary, be mindful of it's intended purpose. To instruct, to edify, to build, to create unity of the spirit.
