They asked each other, “Were not our hearts burning within us while He talked with us on the road and opened the Scriptures to us?”
The preacher who has lost his anointing has lost the art of preaching.
Whatsoever other talents or abilities he may have and retain– the art of sermon-making, the art of eloquence, the art of great, clear thinking, the art of pleasing an audience — he has lost the art of divine preaching. This anointing makes God’s truth powerful and interesting; it draws, attracts, edifies, convicts and saves.
This same anointing vitalizes God’s revealed truth and makes it life-giving. Just like God’s truth spoken without this anointing is dead.
God, I pray for Your anointing on my life today so that I, too, can bring Your message to other people in a powerful way. Amen
Sir Godfrey Gregg
