Pastors Need To PREACH!

The aged Apostle Paul, under divine inspiration of the Holy Ghost, told young Timothy to PREACH the Word! (2 Timothy 4:22 Timothy 4:2
English: King James Version (1611) - KJV

2 Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine.

English: King James Version (1611) - KJV

58 1 Cry aloud, spare not, lift up thy voice like a trumpet, and shew my people their transgression, and the house of Jacob their sins. aloud: Heb. with the throat

) Why have so many of us let the whining apostates intimidate us into watering down the message from God each week? The so-called intellectual elitists think preaching is some sort of brain washing scheme, but it is what God said would save souls! The age of political correctness is the noose that has tightened and squeezed the life out of our fundamental churches. People need PREACHING more than they realize and pastors should do just that… PREACH!

(1 Corinthians 1:181 Corinthians 1:18
English: King James Version (1611) - KJV

18 For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness; but unto us which are saved it is the power of God.

More times than not, preaching has been the very thing that has helped me the most when I was in need. Everything from finding God’s will for my life, to getting victory over a sin… preaching has been the medium that God implemented to enlighten me.

(1 Corinthians 1:211 Corinthians 1:21
English: King James Version (1611) - KJV

21 For after that in the wisdom of God the world by wisdom knew not God, it pleased God by the foolishness of preaching to save them that believe.

Each preacher is different, but God’s Word is the same. One pastor may have a certain type of personality that God will use to help me at one time, while later on in my life an opposite was more helpful. The fact is that God uses each preacher to help all kinds of people. Regardless of styles, personalities, and background God will use the preaching of a pastor to help people.

Have you stopped preaching? Have you stopped listening to preaching? Do you dread the notion of going to church because of the possibility of hearing a sermon? God uses PREACHINGto get His job done! We had better remember this great axiom of life!
