Your Preaching Gotta Take Them Higher

Oh Freedom…

Oh Freedom…

Oh Freedom over me…

And before I’ll be a slave

I’ll be buried in my grave

And go home to my Lord and be free…

What was it that could make the slave singer stand in the midst of hell?

What was it that empower the slave to see the worst that humanity can put on them and still stand forth with some degree of dignity?

Make Sure The Truth Cuts And Not You

We preachers have to come to terms with a few important points.

In fact, if everybody loves all your sermons and messages, you probably are doing something wrong…

Somebody aught to get upset at least every once in a while. If everybody is comfortable..then guess what, something is wrong…

But that is not to say we should go out of our way to mess over folks.
