I’m sure I am not the only person who finds themselves praying for one message to make a massive difference. When we are captivated by the God who speaks through a specific passage of Scripture, our yearning is for that impact to be felt deep and real by the listeners when we preach it.
But let’s not lose sight of the impact of a drip feeding ministry. Regular exposure to the God of the Bible, to His Gospel, to the blessing of His self-revelation in His Word . . . it has a massive effect on people, even if we don’t see the impact of every point, every message, every application.
Somebody said it is easy to over-estimate what can be achieved in one message, but under-estimate what can be achieved over five years. Pray for the balance of faith-fueled passion for each message, but also for divine diligence to press on for the long-term effect.
