“Behold, the days are coming,” says the Lord GOD, “that I will

       send a famine on the land, not a famine of bread, nor a thirst for water,

                               but of hearing the words of the LORD.”

                                                         (Amos 8:11)

 

Today in America, there is a famine for the Word of God. The dean’s office at Truett Seminary receives calls daily from pulpit committees across the country frantically attempting to find someone who will preach the Word of God. It’s important to understand that it is becoming increasingly rare for someone to stand up and expound on the Word of God. This kind of faithful pastor recognizes that he is under the same Word that he preaches. That is how he feeds the sheep.
