Does God Set You Aside So God Can Preach?

I know what you are saying, but I don’t like the terminology, “Lord set me aside as I preach…”

I understand…you are want the people to see God’s glory and not our imperfections.

I understand…

But…

God chose you for a reason. God placed you, with all of your imperfections right now in that pulpit, because that people need to hear something that your uniqueness will provide when placed in the hand of God.

Your people don’t need a generic sermon that could be preached by anybody…

No…

Your people need someone to preach with your unique combination of dreams, fears, hurts, successes, and yes even failures…

When real people preach real sermons real congregation are touched…

Let me say that one more time…

When a real preacher preaches a real sermon…then real people in that congregation will be touched.

They may not shout…They may not holla…They may not dance, but they will be touched.

If God merely took you out of the way and preached…then why you…why not somebody else?

That ain’t how God wrote the Bible…God used Paul…Peter…and the gang by speaking THROUGH them not instead of them…The Bible writers were God’s penmen…not God’s pen…

That’s why we can recognize different Bible writers.

And today…God is ready and willing to speak through us and not instead of us…

I know…I know…you don’t agree…but hey we ain’t gonna always agree…

But all I’m saying is when I preach, I pray that the Lord will preach through me and not instead of me…

God chose you…

God placed you…

And God will use you…
