"Is there any word from the Lord?"

How would we preach our sermons if we knew Jesus was going to be sitting in the pew this Sunday?
Here is some encouragement for Biblical preaching.

John Owen said, "The Word must dwell in us with power before it can go forth from us with power."

Biblical Preaching
by Wil Pounds

Preaching is not merely talk about God. It is God Himself working through the message and personality of the preacher confronting men and bringing them to Himself.

Power exists in the spoken word. “For I long to see you, so that I may impart to you some spiritual gift to strengthen you, that is, that we may be mutually comforted by one another’s faith, both yours and mine” (Romans 1:11-12 NET).

Effective Biblical preaching brings about change in people’s lives. The apostle Paul wrote to the church in the Greek city of Thessalonica: “For people everywhere report how you welcomed us and how you turned to God from idols to serve the living and true God  and to wait for his Son from heaven, whom he raised from the dead, Jesus our deliverer from the coming wrath” (1 Thessalonians 1:9-10 NET). That is what happens when you receive the Word of God.
It is not a “happy talk” at the Christian happy hour on Sunday morning. . . . continue
