Pastor’s Crossing

 

The Pastor’s Corner     

To the saints at Stone Mountain:

 

As I am writing this pastoral letter I am also viewing/listening to a lecture on Preaching, delivered at Reformed Theological Seminary in Jackson, MS, by Dr. Timothy Keller. Dr. Keller is the founding pastor of the Redeemer Presbyterian Church in New York City.

 

Dr. Keller told the joke of a preacher who, just before he preached, prayed, “Oh, Lord, give me the words to say and help us to understand and give us insight”. As he prayed, a voice came from heaven, saying, “Oh, so you’re not prepared”.

As I chuckled, I thought of those sermons I’ve heard which clearly showcased an unprepared preacher.

 

Preaching is my life’s work. I have never stood up to preach, unprepared. To do so would be an offense to the God who called me. Today, I am thinking of what we all do in the name of ministry and am daring us to do what we do, at a high level. Let us do our homework, prepare our tasks and deliver the goods with excellence.

 

Some people use charisma and personality to get through a task for which they are woefully unprepared. Is that you? Am I one of those persons? I trust not!!

 

Therefore, whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God.

(1 Corinthians 10:31)

 

And whatever you do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through Him. (Colossians 3:17)

 

Glad the tomb is empty,

Pastor Farmer
