Kay Arthur on Balancing Ministry and Your Spiritual Walk

Kay Arthur

Yet even as your understanding of the Bible increases, you find yourself slipping into a state of spiritual fatigue. Your congregation or students thank you for the insight you’ve provided, for the difference your study has made in their lives. But you know God has used you in spite of the distance from him you feel at the moment. You may have crafted the perfect sermon, but your spiritual well has run dry.
In this excerpt from Bible Study Magazine’s exclusive interview with Kay Arthur, the beloved Bible-study expert shares how she maintains vitality in her spiritual life through personal quiet time and by refusing to separate her lesson preparation from her own spiritual walk.

How Worldview Should Influence Biblical Interpretation

When we read something, that information is filtered through our own experiences and culture. This is no less true when we read the Bible. Our worldviews are important, but we rarely get a chance to see the Bible from another perspective. Because of language barrier and distance, we have limited access. Although it’s never appropriate to read something into the biblical text that isn’t there, unique cultural viewpoints can help draw out scriptural truth that might otherwise have been missed. The Transformative Word series is designed to help illuminate these diverse perspectives.

We’ve enlisted church leaders and scholars from around the globe to show us the transformative significance of each biblical book. Each contributor will write in their native language, and their book will be translated and published in multiple languages. The unique personal and cultural experiences of this diverse cast of contributors reveal biblical truth in a way you may never have seen before.
