I have preached several sermons in the first person mode, using either the individual or someone who could have been there. E.G. I told the story of the OT Joseph from the view point of one of Pharaoh's guards. Or at Christmas one of the servant to the Magi told their story. When Moses lead the people across the Red Sea, I read the "journal" from the first person to cross and the last person to cross the sea. I let my people know they are from the "Red Sea Scrolls" which exist in the dusty caverns of my mind as opposed to the real Dead Sea Scrolls. It is interesting to create a sermon, talk, devotional, etc. this way.

Encouraging! I love the story aspect of the Bible and attempt to use precise and engaging language in my own preaching. Thanks.
