Today is Saturday and I am ready to study and do some work on downloading some of the messages/lessons on to YouTube.
Yesterday I listen to Tim Keller give a lesson on “What Is Good Preaching”. The lesson was over an hour but I listen and took notes on the first 30 minutes. And this took me 6 hours to accomplish.
I love to research the material that he was giving. I enjoyed searching the web for the material.
Some of the websites I discovered in this project
'Good preaching is the altar Great preaching is the fire that God sent down on the altar. It is not your job is not to light the alter. You build the altar with good preaching. To try to preach a great sermon to hit a home run i not good. To try to light the alter of the heart is not good and you just can't do it. Don't try to me the Holy Spirit. You are working to hard, just lay it out there. If God want's to make it a home run then he will do it.
Did you hear about the minister who got up to preached and prayed "Lord give me the words as I preach today . help me to know what your people need to hear today. Show me the things I should say." And suddenly a voice came out of the sky and said "Oh you mean you are not prepared"
I am going to transcribe the notes and research work soon
