“A prepared messenger is more important than a prepared message.” – Robert Munger
This preaching quote hits home. How many times have I worked my tail off to prepare a message, but failed to prepare myself?
Before we ever prepare our sermons, we need to look in the mirror and make sure we are prepared ourselves.
Even the greatest sermon ever written loses all power when delivered by a person unfit to preach.
How is your spiritual life?
How is your personal life?
How is your attitude?
How are you doing physically?
Are you taking care of the things in life that matter?
Are you practicing what you are preaching this Sunday?
Long before the pen hits the page, a sermon begins with Christ’s work in you.
