Dear Pastor, Preacher, or Bible Teacher –
Happy Monday to you! I know that this will be a busy week for you, and maybe stressful. I want you to know that I am praying for you this week, asking God to bring special wisdom, grace, strength, and spiritual power to every servant of His that reads this!
I am praying that Ephesians 1:17-20 will be real in your life and ministry this week:
that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory,
may give to you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of Him,
the eyes of your understanding being enlightened;
that you may know what is the hope of His calling,
what are the riches of the glory of His inheritance in the saints,
and what is the exceeding greatness of His power toward us who believe,
according to the working of His mighty power
which He worked in Christ when He raised Him from the dead
and seated Him at His right hand in the heavenly places,
Here is a special bonus. A few years ago a received a very special Bible. It was one of the preaching Bibles of a great man of God named J. Edwin Orr. Dr. Orr had this Bible specially bound with preaching notes in it. So, below are notes that he used to preach on the resurrection of Jesus from 1 Corinthians 15. Maybe it might stir your mind for a thought or two this week!
Blessings to you in Jesus’ Name – David Guzik
