Do You Ever Feel Like a Broken Record?

When I preach and teach, I feel like I say the same things over and over. Sometimes things do get repeated, but I hope it isn’t as bad as I feel it can be. A pastor I know was teaching a Sunday School class and asked, “Why does God repeat Himself so much in Scripture?” A lady with no filter said, “Because people are too **** stupid to get it the first time.” We may not prefer to use her language, but she did have a point.

God does repeat many things throughout the Bible. Why? Because the people in that day didn’t get it the first time, and we don’t now. In Second Peter, he uses the phrase “stir up your remembrance”. Just like we parents repeat ourselves to our children. Holla if you can relate?๐Ÿ˜‚

You may feel like a broken record, but it is for a purpose. Repeat yourself as much as necessary. Eventually, someone will get it.

Author: Matthew Winters (The Comeback Pastor)

Born and raised in Portsmouth, VA, I eventually landed in upstate SC because when God calls I move. I gave my life to Christ in 1987 and surrendered to the call to ministry in 1997. I am a three-time graduate from Liberty University and Theological Seminary: BS in Religion (2003), the MA in Religion (Leadership concentration - 2006), and the Master of Divinity (Pastoral Ministries - 2013). I have served as a worship leader and senior pastor in Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina, and Georgia since 1996. After experiencing a divorce, God graciously gave me my wife, Jennifer, whom I married in September 2015. Between the two of us, we have 6 children. I am the Lead/Founding Pastor of Overcomers Church in Walhalla, SC, a church plant that is helping those who have been overcome by life to become Overcomers in Christ. Jennifer and I both love people and long to see them enter into a relationship with Christ and walk in the power of His Spirit. I pray that these thoughts I share will challenge and inspire you to greater heights and deeper depths for the glory of Christ.
