Haddon Robinson says this of preaching: “If preaching is not your center, then you will not preach. You will give all of your time, all of your energy, and all of your heart to other areas of ministry. However, if you are called by God to preach, if you burn to preach, if preaching is your center, then you will do whatever is necessary to make preaching central to your week of ministry.”
As you prepare to preach today, pray for God to work in power. As you finish your pulpit ministry today and start to prepare for another week, prayerfully consider these words. Perhaps you will find a renewed passion to make preaching central this week. If preaching is your center, then you will find yourself doing just that.
