I couldn't agree more! Once again a reminder that we can't give what people really need when we have not experienced it/Him! This has been great encouragement and reinforcement for me. Thanks so much, pastor Willard!

An incredibly insightful and informative article. Broken with emotion and comfort, I read carefully the heart of a man that's found the key to "his yoke is easy and his burden is light". Your passion for encouraging, not just those seeking that enhanced realm, but those presently experiencing it and needing affirmation as to its effectiveness; you richly provided that element. I thank God first for your obedience, and secondly, for the class in which it was rendered. I'm sure we, at Impact Ministries, will make this a necessary reading for all our Word ministers. It entails the essence of what true ministry should look like; a minister spiritually filled and pouring out of his belly the Grace of this transformative Gospel. This article was forwarded to me from a fellow minister, who also senses the divine expressiveness of the overflow of which you've alluded. Normally, I've been skeptical of larger volume media due to subject generalities; I'll be more open to material such as this!

Excellent! It is time that preaching be from the life of the preacher as centered in the Word of God.

Thanks for sharing this truth that God has led you to write. I agree with you one hundred percent! It is the only way, for results that show, and for the group or congregation to receive from the Lord. Pastor, I give God praise for you.

It sound that it comes from a deep well of satisfaction in the Lord - thank Dr. Willard for such wisdom filled words. It encouraged me.
