The Sermon Prep Meal

Sharing Options

“What I am stressing is this: a minister must be a divine interpreter, an interpreter of God’s meaning. And therefore he must not only read the book, but eat it. He must not only have the knowledge of divine things flowing in his brain, but engraved on his heart and printed in his soul by the spiritual finger of God. To this end, after all his own study, meditation and discussion, his use of commentaries and other human hleps, he must pray with David, ‘Open my eyes, that I may see wondrous things from Your law’ (Psa. 119:18)” (Perkins, The Art of Prophesying, pp. 90-91).
