Preachers are therefore like forest

  |  0 Comments

Preachers are therefore like forest rangers. The ranger knows the terrain and helps people to learn how to navigate it. In a similar way, a preacher is meant to learn the terrain of reality as it relates to God, people, places and personal conscience. The Bible is the map that one needs to amke true contact. With that map, the preacher introduces reality to people and in essence says: "Now when you come across this kind of path, here is what you need to know in order to walk the path wisely." The map has something to say regarding every path available in this landscape of "all things" withs it varying kinds and capacities.

The wise Spurgeon looked at him and said, "Do you expect to see a man converted every time you preach?" And the young minister answered, "Oh, of course not." Spurgeon said, "That young man, is your problem."

God never sends revival without

God never sends revival without touching the preachers first and when it comes their preaching is changed in both style and content. People begin to preach with a power that they never had before, and, at the same time, their preaching ceases to be man-centred and focuses instead on God. Then it begins to pierce people’s hearts
