Scripture

by Norman P. Grubb

I’m glad the Scripture gives authority for plenty of repetition, and so no sermons can be stale. You can go on repeating it—the Scripture says so. I think of that same thought the way that Aquila and Priscilla put it, or it was put concerning them, in Acts 18:26 where it says, “They took Apollos and expounded unto him the way of God more perfectly.” I like that. “Expounded unto him the way of God more perfectly.” We can always go a little farther on that road. Perhaps I like even more, as suitable to our own need, the words in the end of Hebrews 5, and the beginning of Hebrews 6, where he says, “Come off this elementary business.” He says, “When for the time ye ought to be teachers, ye have need that one teach you again which be the first principles of the oracles of God.” That won’t do, you’ve got to be teachers, but mind you it’s something to be teachers.
