A Sermon Changed His Life

A Sermon Changed His Life

My life to be exact.

You see, preaching is a huge part of my story.

I had been in the midst of a ton of change and as a 20-year-old kid looking for direction, I was exposed to the grace of God in an unlikely place. During a Sunday morning service at a business conference (that’s Amway for you), I heard the grace of God preached by a preacher. My life changed that day because it was then that I began to seek Jesus.

Fast forward about a year. I had fully surrendered to Christ and was one of those guys who was attending both Sunday services and taking voracious notes from the sermon during both. And then on the morning of a Super Bowl Sunday, God called me to vocational ministry.

I’m passionate about preaching because I’m passionate about the gospel. I believe that God can use Christ-centered, passionate preaching to shake people’s hearts. I believe that something special happens in the sermon as the Holy Spirit begins to tug and pull at people’s hearts.

Pastor, what you do matters. The weight of preaching, in my opinion, should drive us to a posture of being perpetual students. There is still so much to learn and so much room to improve in our craft of preaching.
