I want my message to be intelligible to the ordinary man. I’m feeding sheep, not ministering to a few intellectual giraffes.
On the voyage to Rome, Paul did not hide in his cabin when the storm arose; he went on deck and took command of the situation. Too many Christians huddle in staterooms these days, discussing Euroclydon instead of rising to the occasion in the name of the Lord. It is much easier to stay hidden and deplore the tempest. We need to be on deck with a word for the passengers.
