Many have made the point that the day you stop learning is the day you stop teaching. The day you stop growing is the day you stop truly leading. So let me ask the simple question, are you growing as a preacher? What does that mean?
I suppose there are basically two areas to be considered, as well as two paths to pursue growth.
Preachers need to grow in their preaching, but not as much as they need to grow in their relationship with Christ.
How do we pursue spiritual growth? Two options. One is to pursue growth in our own strength – the self-moved effort to mature and learn, etc. The other is to pursue growth in our responsiveness to Christ’s work in our lives.
