- I have long believed that ‘Sermons’ are wrong, and that what God really wants us to do is ‘share’ with each other the truths and the convictions that are laid on our hearts by the Holy Spirit [1 Corinthians 14: 26.] 26 What then shall we say, brothers? When you come together, everyone has a hymn, or a word of instruction, a revelation, a tongue or an interpretation. All of these must be done for the strengthening of the church.
- I have stepped out in faith and put this to the test. My testimony is that whenever I have done this, I have been given the words to say, and the truth to share. It is significant, I think, that I always run out of words at the same time as the service is supposed to end.
- It is always a step in faith, because every time I have that fear that I will not have anything to say, and that I will ‘dry up’, but God is faithful and He always gives me enough. Hallelujah!
Think about it – Andrew the “Fisherman”, and Peter the “Deny-er” didn’t go to theological college, or attend lay preacher classes for diplomas to learn how to preach, they just stood up and testified to what they knew about Jesus…….
