James 1:22 exhorts us to be "doers of the Word, and not hearers only." The pastor is required in Scripture to feed the sheep, over which the Holy Ghost has made him overseer of the local church (Acts 20:28). This involves 1) intense study of the Word of God, 2) understanding the original language and culture in which it was spoken, 3) sound hermeneutics which is the principle and method of interpreting the text of God's Word (2 Timothy 2:15) and 4) the exposition, which is the process of carefully translating the Word into food for the hearers. The believer's responsibility begins with being swift to hear, having an intense hunger for the Word which assists him in properly receiving it (James 1:19).
