The word “preaching” has been twisted and redefined in two ways:
- “Preaching” is something that pastors do from the pulpit. The early Christians understood that “preaching” was something every Christian was called to do as they opened their mouths and shared the words of God from the Bible with others.
- Just listening to “preaching” isn’t going to change your life. Let us repent of this! God has said, “faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the Word of God” and “how can they believe unless they hear, and how can they hear unless someone preaches?” (Rom 10).The urgent need in the church and homes today is not less preaching and less Bible teaching, but more! That is where the power of spiritual transformation lies.
