I want to share a quote that relates to our task of preaching the Word of God. I was blessed by this recent blog. Carl Trueman relays a recent conversation with the great theologian J.I. Packer. Packer had the distinct privilege of sitting under the pulpit ministry of D. Martyn Lloyd-Jones (one of my heroes) and here’s how Packer described him:
He took more of God into the pulpit with him than any other preacher I have ever known.
What a quote! How much of God will you take into the pulpit with you this Sunday? May we be so filled with the Spirit of God and our minds so renewed by the Word of God and our hearts so captured by the grace of God that we will give our people a great sense of God as we preach!
