 Preaching is not child's play.

Preaching is not child's play--
it is not a thing to be done without labor and anxiety;
it is solemn work;
it is awful work,
if you view it in its relation to eternity.

When we think that when we speak to you, your salvation
or damnation, in some measure, depends upon what we
say- when we reflect that if we are unfaithful watchmen,
your blood will God require at our hands- O, good God!


When I reflect that I have preached to thousands in my
lifetime, and have perhaps said many things I ought not to
have said, it startles me, it makes me shake and tremble.

-Spurgeon, "Paul's First Prayer"

 Re: Preaching is not child's play.

I’ve recently been doing a personal study on “fear of the Lord”. It hit me as to the lack of teaching on it nowadays. I stumbled upon this quote and just thought I would post it. It gave me reason to pause.

 Re: Preaching is not child's play.

Each Sunday I pray that God will protect my lips from speaking anything outside His word or will and that God will protect the hearers that they might not hear anything not meant for them.

God gives warning to preachers and I believe grace to the hearers. We have been emphasizing the fear of the Lord over the last two years.
