Qoutes on preaching

“The preaching of Christ is the whip that flogs the devil. The preaching of Christ is the thunderbolt, the sound of which makes all hell shake.” ~ Charles Spurgeon

”The preacher is not a chef; he's a waiter. God doesn't want you to make the meal; He just wants you to deliver it to the table without messing it up. That's all.” ~ John MacArthur

“God has ordained that our preaching become deeper and more winsome as we are broken, humbled, and made low and desperately dependent on grace by the trials of our lives.” ~ John Piper

“Give me one hundred preachers who fear nothing but sin and desire nothing but God, and I care not whether they be clergymen or laymen, they alone will shake the gates of Hell and set up the kingdom of Heaven upon Earth.” ~ John Wesley

Prayer is the foundation on which world-changing visions are built.  - Jerry Nance, Ph.D., President, Global Teen Challenge

“If Jesus preached the same message minister's preach today, He would have never been crucified.” ~ Leonard Ravenhill

“Preaching the truth without love is like giving someone a good kiss when you have bad breath.” Ed Silvoso, Prayer Evangelism

“The gospel we preach must not be just something we hear from men or read from books or even conceived through our meditation. Unless it is delivered to us by God, it can serve no spiritual utility.” ~ Watchman Nee

“It is no use walking anywhere to preach unless our walking is our preaching.” ~ Francis of Assisi

“I'd rather be able to pray than to be a great preacher; Jesus Christ never taught his disciples how to preach, but only how to pray.” ~ D.L. Moody

“We complain today that ministers do not know how to preach; but is it not equally true that our congregations do not know how to hear?” ~ J.I. Packer

“What is the chief end of preaching? I like to think it is this: It is to give men and women a sense of God and His presence.” ~ Martyn Lloyd-Jones

“Only once did God choose a completely sinless preacher.” ~ Alexander Whyte

Jesus ministered not to attract attention to himself, but because he loved needy people and cared about their needs. Compassion drove Jesus to give people his time, his love, his energy, his life—his all. - Colin Dye

It takes two wings for an eagle to fly. If an eagle were to try to fly with just one wing he would only spin around in circles on the ground. The same is true with many people who are trying to soar spiritually on their faith, but have not added patience. These just keep going around in circles, getting more and more frustrated and kicking up a lot of dust. Any truth that we teach without this counter balancing truth will lead us to frustration, not fulfillment. - Rick Joyner
