In your preaching, do you avoid certain passages of Scripture? I’m not only talking about the long lists of people who participated in the building of the tabernacle or the long lists of people who worked with Nehemiah. I’m including any passage of Scripture that you may feel is just too difficult for the people in your congregation to process and understand.
Many fine preachers purposely avoid the Book of Revelation. Oh, they may quote a verse or two from this mysterious Book to support some particular preaching theme. But, few pastors roll up their sleeves and dig into this Book in a way that will inspire their congregants to see the key theme and purpose of this last book of the New Testament.
In Podcast 237, I offer you, my fellow pastors, the reasons why I believe we should preach more from the Book of Revelation. I invite you to click the link on this page that will take you to my Sermon-Coach website and listen to this Podcast.
After you hear what I have to say, I hope you will be inspired to at least carefully consider whether or not you should take the plunge and expose yourself and your congregation to an in-depth study of this wonderful Book.
I continue to feel very grateful and am humbled by the many positive comments about my latest book entitled The Sermon Sucking Black Hole—Why You Can’t Remember on Monday What Your Minister Preached on Sunday. This book is now available at Amazon.com by clicking here.
This book gives some solid tips to the people sitting in the congregation to help them remember what you’ve said from the pulpit when they come to worship services in the church where you serve as pastor.
