Preachers Can’t Do It Alone

Don’t leave the sermon at church.

Have you every wondered why preachers preach sermons? Are they trying to impress their parishioners, or do they have more noble purposes in mind? Perhaps good sermons delivered eloquently help preachers feel good about all those years they spent in seminary.

We believe the vast majority of preachers prepare and deliver their sermons for one overarching purpose–so that those of us sitting in the pews might be motivated to live our lives more for God and less for ourselves. Of course, the preachers can’t do it alone, no matter how powerful their sermons. We need to help by taking the sermons with us when we leave the church building.

The building isn’t the church anyway. We are the church, and wherever we go, we take the sermons–and all that they mean–with us.

Now wherever we go he uses us to tell others about the Lord and to spread the Good News like a sweet perfume. 2 Corinthians 2:14
