How Sermon Preparation Can Harm You…

“… lack of private devotional reading and shortness of prayer through incessant sermon making has produced much strangeness between God and my soul.”

~Henry Martyn

To my fellow sermon-makers out there: be not busy with the text of Scripture for the purpose of the flock until you have fed yourself with it first by eating at the table of God’s delicacies through prayer and meditation on the Word.
