Excellent article Rev. Eclov. Like John the Baptist reminded the religious establishment of his day and we who are charged with delivering the Word today: "It's NOT about YOU!" In recent months I was planning on using a sermon that I had preached at my church for another pastor's congregation. However, the Holy Spirit led me to a different passage that I had not preached on before and I received a strong message from the Lord saying, "NO! You are preaching on THIS not THAT!" Over the years, I've learned to listen to the still small voice of God, and was pleased to see how well you conveyed that and John the Baptist's reminder to your Womens' Ministries Pastors. At least those women were coming to the studies. But I can also understand the Pastors' frustration after all the hours they put into lesson prep. I spend an average of 20 hrs. doing sermon prep. but there's no homework required from those in the pews. However, I do encourage people to study the Bible passage for themselves.

Great Words Lee! Though I'm not a pastor I often teach in our Adult Sunday Community (aka Sunday School). This counsel applies to me as well. I will never take my preparation as lightly again.

Eclov is right on the money. Unless we hear the voice of God speaking how can we say "thus saith the Lord?" We cannot be spokes person for God if we ourselves have not heard his voice. To keep in step with the Spirit, not to grieve the Spirit, to walk by the Spirit, to live by faith in the Son of God who loved me and gave himself for me, we must partner with God.

Thank you, Rev. Eclov, for reminding me about what's most important in sermon preparation. From now on I will strive to remember that soul preparation must precede sermon preparation!
