fire and blood

Last night I listened to the John Piper talk from T4G. Afterwards I sat and shuddered and almost wept... on Thursday night I'm suppposed to be "preaching" at Surrey CU. Please pray that my preaching would be glorifying to God... I don't need to be John Piper, nor preach in a particular style or structure... but I want to burn with the gospel like him as I preach Acts 6v1-7... I want to feel the weight of the glory of the gospel... to point people to Jesus.... to exult in Jesus, tasting the satisfaction of the gospel over all things.

the mantle of preaching is soaked in the blood of Jesus and singed in the fire of hell.

    It's so encouraging to hear your desire to sense the weight and heaviness of the Gospel message you proclaim. It's so refreshing for to hear a careful Bible expositor express something of the emotion involved in handling God's very words. Sometimes I think it's so easy for us to slip into a cold, polished academic approach to our Bible teaching. I pray we'll never lose that awe of the great privilege we have set before us.
