Andy Davis delivered a message to the Carolinas Regional Chapter of TGC titled “How the Scriptures Equip,” as a part of the series “Equipped for Every Good.” Teaching from 2 Timothy 3:14–17, he argued that Scripture alone is sufficient to equip believers for our journey of salvation—from unbelief to faithful followers of Jesus. He then applied that truth to the responsibility pastors steward as they preach and lead their churches. Summarizing Spurgeon, Davis challenged his audience: “There should be real teaching in your sermon. The doctrine should be solid and substantial. There should be a system of truth building up in your hearers if they hear you over a length of time.” And Scripture—in concert with the ministry of the Holy Spirit—provides all you need to wisely lead each person under your care.
