Fresh Anointing

Written 30 years ago when I was in Bible college after I was
called to preach on February 22, 1981:

“It pleased God by the foolishness of preaching to save them that believe” (I Corinthians 1:21). God, in His greatness and sovereignty, has chosen something seemingly foolish to the world to convey the gospel. He has chosen us as preachers to tell the wondrous story of amazing grace and redemption!

I view preaching in two distinct ways. First of all, I believe with all my heart that preaching is the greatest privilege ever given to fallen man (apart from salvation). The God of this entire universe has called you and me to preach His blessed Word! Amen! Secondly, I look at preaching as a great responsibility. We have to be faithful in proclaiming God’s Word because we will give account to Him one day!

God is looking for some men who will stand in the gap and make up the hedge. Oh, how we need some men of God today who will preach in the power of God, with His anointing and unction from on High. We need men who are called, committed, compelled, constrained, courageous, and compassionate. We need preachers who will yearn for God’s power and blessing. Truly, men of God!

“And I thank Christ Jesus our Lord, who hath enabled me, for that
he counted me faithful, putting me into the ministry;”
I Timothy 1:12
