Notes from our Preacher
1 Corinthians 1:18 For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness; but unto us which are saved it is the power of God.
I preach on average 90 to 105 sermons each year from the pulpit, and people acknowledge that I am a preacher, and most of them expect me to do what I do every Sunday, that is to put a lesson together and present it to the audience, which I do! But the sermons I present from the pulpit on Sundays are not nearly as effective as the sermons you the every day Christian preach every day of your live as you interact with the world.
The world of sinners do not know God, nor do they read God's word on a regular basis, but they do read you, your words, your actions, your attitude toward life and Godliness. So what do your words, your actions, your attitude preach to those who are around or with you on a daily basis.
We may not care what others think about us if we are not Christians, but if we are Christians, or even profess to being a Christian, we must care. Our lives, the way we are, must preach and declare Jesus to those around us. Even the way we dress says a lot to those who see us every day. Remember this verse of scripture 1 Thess 5:22 Abstain from all appearance of evil.... I heard an old preacher say this in a sermon one time; I had rather see a sermon than hear one any day. I had rather one would walk with me than merely show me the way.
As a Christian, what are you preaching to those who know and are around you daily? Think about it!
