When you remember great sermons that have been preached by pastors current and from the past, they pail in comparison to the Master of great sermons. Jesus’ few words are so packed with amazing truths. We are allowed to preach by gathering inside information via the Holy Spirit, commentaries, and theological professors. Jesus preaching was from within.
That leaves me to formulate a thought here. Shouldn’t we as spiritual leaders also be preaching from within as we draw day by day closer and closer to Jesus? Our sermons should by all means be more heart felt as we preach time and time again. I pray that I can be a Jesus preacher as well.
