Credit It, Of Course, But Especially Live It

“This activity of relating the message to the life of the preacher is especially significant if the preacher is preaching a lot of material he has gleaned from others . . . The bigger issue is that the ‘borrowed’ material needs to become a message that can be preached authentically through the preacher . . . You can use it, giving due credit; but make sure you have ‘heard’ it and responded to it, that the message is yours by virtue of personal submission and commitment.”

Olford, Anointed Expository Preaching, p. 178
