• Samuel at Gilgal

    This year I will be sharing brief excerpts from the articles, sermons, and books I am currently reading. My posts will not follow a regular schedule but will be published as I find well-written thoughts that should be of interest to maturing Christian readers. Whenever possible, I encourage you to go to the source and read the complete work of the author.

Do You Prize Preaching?

In the words of Thomas Watson:

[Concerning the Word preached:] “Do we prize it in our judgments? Do we receive it into our hearts? Do we fear the loss of the Word preached more than the loss of peace and trade? Is it the removal of the ark that troubles us? Again, do we attend to the Word with reverential devotion? When the judge is giving the charge on the bench, all attend. When the Word is preached, the great God is giving us his charge. Do we listen to it as to a matter of life and death? This is a good sign that we love the Word.

  1. This is very powerful. My personal answer is no. We no longer prize the word as it goes forth over the pulpit because their is such speculation about the character of the person delivering the message. I love the word, and reverence God, however as a writer about overcoming child sexual abuse, I don’t want to hear anything that Eddie Long, or Darrell Gilyard says. I am not interested in their words, whether it comes from heaven or not has a lot to do with spiritual connection. It is hard to see that someone is spiritually connected when they are not invested in their own teaching.
