A Daily Bible Teaching Radio Program From Jim Andrews: Pastor, Teacher, and Author

Welcome to The Final Word from Pastor Jim Andrews of Lake Bible Church in Lake Oswego, Oregon. Pastor Jim typically teaches through the books of the Bible in a verse-by-verse expositional style, though you will also find several topical series he’s recorded to address certain broader biblical issues.

In addition, you may choose to study a Subject (a new feature to our website) that Jim has addressed in various programs throughout his teaching in the Scriptures. Pastor Jim’s preaching philosophy is to “cause the truth of God to intersect with the issues of life in such a way that the two collide violently in the consciousness.” He sees the preacher’s job as “comforting the afflicted and afflicting the comfortable.”

“It was much better to put all these men to work than to do all the work. It evoked talent; it ennobled them by placing them in positions of responsibility before their fellow men; it drove them to personal dealings with God; it inspired them with a fellow-feeling with Moses; it turned critics into sympathizers and companions; and it educated them for positions for which they might be required in the emergencies of the future. It is a great matter to be a good workman, one not needing to be ashamed; but it is greater to be able to call out other workmen and set them at work.

F. B. Meyer, ‘This policy was what the apostles adopted when the business of the Church had so grown that it engrossed too much of their time and energy. . . . . They called in the help of Stephen and his colleagues ‘to serve tables,’ while they gave themselves to prayer and to the ministry of the Word of God.’ Elsewhere he says, ‘We should always live on the greatest side of our nature, reserving ourselves for that.’”

“Jethro, Moses' father-in-law, said to him, ‘What you were doing is not good. What is this thing you were doing for the people? Why do you alone sit as judge and all the people stand about you morning until evening?’ In this narrative, we observe three of the leading marks of wise people: 1) they give good advice 2) they listen to good advice and 3) they have pretty good instincts about who’s got good advice.

Jethro was smart enough about life to be helpful to anyone with ears to hear, and Moses was wise enough to have his ears on and to recognize wisdom when he heard it. A wise counselor is of little use to people who don’t have ears. But having ears isn’t too helpful if one is not discerning enough to know a fool from a sage. Nothing will help fine tune our hearing like knowing God, which comes from walking close to Him and saturating our minds with His Word.”

“’Moses told his father-in-law all that the Lord had done to Pharaoh and to the Egyptian’s for Israel’s sake, all the hardship that had befallen them on the journey, and how the Lord had delivered them.’ What a person really wants to talk about tells you a lot about that person. There is a kind of gravity in social settings that inevitably forces the conversation in the direction of the lowest common denominators in that circle. Much of the time, it never rises above the mundane, the superficial or the irrelevant.

The conversation of many men never gets beyond hunting, fishing, cars, golf, the Blazers, and such things. You couldn’t elevate the conversation to the level Moses did, if you tried. You sense that it is a dead-end street. They are running on empty when it comes to talking about spiritual things and the work of God in their lives, and they can’t really even relate to the subject.”

--Pastor Jim Andrews on Exodus 18:5-12.
