Quote by John MacArthur:
It escapes some people, that you can’t explain the meaning of the scripture, if you don’t study the scripture. Approaching the Bible is not some ‘mystical’ kind of event. It is just plain hard work! I’ve had young men say to me through the years – “What’s the secret to your Bible teaching?” And I will tell them this invariably: the secret to really good Bible teaching is the ability to keep your rear end in a chair until you understand what it means! “Oh, that’s not very mystical. It’s not very spiritual.” No, it’s hard work.
