A Greater Sense of Urgency

When you preach do you feel that you display a greater sense of urgency? I mean when you stand in front of your congregation each week do you sense that the message God has given you to preach has a definite component of urgency?

I have long been accused of having too singular a focus in my preaching ministry. Virtually every sermon I prepare and preach has a definite component of calling the church, families, and individuals to revival. It’s a message that God gave to me long ago. And, it’s a message that He regularly re-confirms.

I’ve been accused of being a “Johnny-One-Note.” And, I guess I am—at least in the sense that I feel moved by God to offer a consistent message for my listeners. I truly believe that the only hope for our nation and for the world is to experience a sweeping movement of the Holy Spirit that will bring new life to the church and to its people.

Even more so, I believe this is a time when pastors need to develop a sense of urgency in their preaching. That’s why I made this topic of urgency the thrust of Podcast No. 208.

If you would like to hear what I have to say about this critically important topic for ministers, I urge you to click the link on this page that will take you to my Sermon-Coach.com website. Once there, you will be able to listen to this particular Podcast.

As you listen, I invite you to remain open to what the Holy Spirit might say to your own heart. Perhaps you will sense Him calling you to make your preaching more urgent in these important days. At least that will be my prayer for you as you listen.

For quite a few weeks now, I’ve shared with you about my new book entitled The Sermon Sucking Black Hole—Why You Can’t Remember on Monday What Your Minister Preached on Sunday. This book is scheduled for release in early May. In the meantime, you may pre-order the book at Amazon.com by clicking here.

This book gives information about how to make your sermons memorable. And, it also gives some solid tips to the people sitting in the congregation to help them remember what you’ve said.
