A Pastor’s Reminder

I am quickly reading through a book one of our women asked me to look at, because they want to use it for the Ladies Bible Study next fall.  As a pastor, this paragraph jumped out as a good reminder not only for the listeners, but for the speaker as well:

When you hear a teacher, a pastor or a speaker utter a statement that rings so true it can only be God, then believe me, it can only be God.  No man or woman is wise enough, educated enough, or clever enough to understand and communicate the deep truths of God’s Word on his or her own.  It’s entirely a work of the Holy Spirit, and all the applause, all the praise must go to him.   –Liz Curtis Higgs in The Women of Christmas  (emphasis hers)

May God get all the praise and glory when he speaks through any of us, his unworthy creatures!
