A Word for Preachers...Chapell on the Key to Effective Preaching

"Consciousness of God's enablement should encourage all preachers (including beginning preachers) to throw themselves wholeheartedly into their calling. Although the degree of homiletical skill will vary, God promises to perform his purposes through all who faithfully proclaim his truth. Even if your words barely crawl over the edge of the pulpit, love of God's Word, will, and people ensures an effective spiritual ministry. You may never hear the accolades of the world or pastor a church of thousands, but a life of godliness combined with clear explanations of Scripture's saving and sanctifying graces engages the power of the Spirit for the glory of God."
