Some indeed preach Christ from envy and rivalry, but others from good will. The latter do it out of love, knowing that I am put here for the defense of the gospel. The former proclaim Christ out of selfish ambition, not sincerely but thinking to afflict me in my imprisonment.
The Word of God: Our Living Hope
Women's Ministry's theme for 2011-2012 is The Word of God. Do you want to know Jesus more this year? Do you desire to see Jesus more clearly?
...if you want to know Jesus, you know him through his word. One of the most important convictions you can ever form is the conviction that Jesus, as a real, living, precious person, is known today chiefly through his word. And the only reason I say "chiefly," and not "only," is that in the fellowship of obedience and suffering from day to day, our personal knowledge of Jesus of goes deeper and deeper, but always through his word. But if you want to see the face of Jesus (2 Corinthians 4:6) most clearly, most surely, you must look at him through his word.—Pastor John Piper, If You Abide In My Word, You Are Truly My Disciples, April 16, 2011 [emphasis added]
