Just a brief thought since it is the season for non-regular attenders at church. When preparing evangelistic sermons it is worth being unusually careful. Apparently, Martyn Lloyd-Jones would always write out his evangelistic sermons, rather than his edification sermons. Remember that the real “risk” when preaching the gospel is not the preacher’s, but the church folk who’ve invited their friends. It is so easy to inadvertently offend in the wrong sense of the term. So with all the extra visitors in our churches this Sunday, let’s be unusually careful in preparing the messages.
