Accurately Handling the Word

Artwork for Straight Talk for Seminary Students

If a preacher of God’s Word ever had a life verse, it would be 2 Timothy 2:15, “Be diligent to present yourself approved to God as a workman who does not need to be ashamed, accurately handling the word of truth” (NASB).

In his message on 2 Timothy 2:15–19, Chuck Swindoll encourages ministry leaders toward this same end as he explains how he himself has pressed on in the same spiritual labor. Commit yourself to the role of a soul-nourishing expositor who unfolds divine mysteries rather than a tap-dancing pulpiteer who entertains audiences with spiritual junk food.
