George Whitefield was once the most famous man in America. Whitefield (1714-1770) was an evangelist and Calvinist preacher during America’s Great Awakening, and it is estimated that during his lifetime he preached to over 10 million people, often to outdoor crowds of up to 25,000 at once.
By all accounts, George Whitefield’s remarkable ministry was marked by his devotion to Jesus Christ and to the truth of Scripture. Clearly, we can learn much about studying Scripture from a man who preached over 18,000 times.
Whitefield continually feasting on the Word of God. He said, “I began to read the Holy Scriptures upon my knees… . This proved meat indeed and drink indeed to my soul. I daily received fresh light and power from above.”
Do you regularly feast on the Word of God?
Here are George Whitefield’s 7 Tips for Reading the Bible:
1. Always Look for Jesus
Have always in view the end for which the Scriptures were written, even to show us the way of salvation, by Jesus Christ.
“Search the Scriptures,” says our blessed Lord, “for they are they that testify of me.” Look, therefore, always for Christ in the scripture. He is the treasure hid in the field, both of the Old and New Testament. In the Old, you will find him under
In the Old, you will find him under prophesies, types, sacrifices, and shadows. In the New, manifested in the flesh, to become a propitiation for our sins as a Priest, and as a Prophet to reveal the whole will of his heavenly Father.
Have Christ, then, always in view when you are reading the word of God, and this will guide you to the Messiah, will serve as a key to every thing that is obscure, and unlock to you the wisdom and riches of all the mysteries of the kingdom of God.
Who were Jesus’ 12 apostles? Can you name them all? If we’re honest, most of us can’t.
After getting through Peter, James, and John many of us rack our brains before coming up with Alvin, Simon, and Theodore as our next best guesses.
Although these men lived and ministered with Jesus, we often have a difficult time remembering much about them. Also, while some apostles are featured prominently throughout the New Testament, others are merely mentioned in passing.
Although the following outlines won’t give you a complete view of each of these men, they will help you understand more about these men and keep track of who wanted to sit at the right hand of Jesus, who was present at the transfiguration, and who thought it would be wise to start cutting off ears when Jesus was arrested in the garden of Gethsemane. The following passage from the book of Mark lists each of Jesus’ 12 apostles.
