6-Months and No Sermons

May 22, 2014

As someone who preaches on a weekly basis, I obviously don’t have many opportunities to be preached to. And listening to me talk does not count! The internet has made it possible to be able to hear a sermon 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. For some reason, I had failed to make it a priority for exactly 6 months.

The day I listened to the first sermon in 6 months it felt like a cold glass of water on a hot summer day, and living in Texas that is over 100 degrees. It was refreshing, rewarding, and invigorating. The dynamic message from a church in Minnesota and was about how we stereotype people.

My point is this: why do pastors not take advantage of this great, nearly endless, resource? After all, we tell people to come to church and hear preaching because it is important, but then we do not do the same. We are hypocrites in that sense.

My challenge to any pastor reading this is download a sermon each week and listen to it. Listen to a variety of preachers from a variety of traditions. Get a broad stroke of Christianity and listen to other pastors or evangelists preach.

I will end here so you can go find a sermon to listen to.
