This month, I am challenging myself to listen to one sermon each day. When my heart and Spirit are right, I love me some good preaching! Since my church now streams its services live (and archived) on YouTube, I have not visited the Sermon Archives of the Website. Tonight, I was remembering a sermon and thought about those archives. After popping over there, I realized how many great sermons the Lord has allowed me to hear since 2008, (when they started archiving them online.) A handful of the preachers I have had the privilege to set under are now in Heaven. What a blessing to be able to go back and hear those precious words of wisdom, love and sometimes sternness again!
Every day in April, I will be listening to a sermon from my “days gone by.” A time when I sat starving for the Word of God and could not get enough. I still hunger for God’s Word, but like many Christians, I now set properly at the Spiritual table, hands folded and manners at the ready. Time and life change how we approach and react to the preaching we are getting. I would not trade those first years of “I never heard that before” messages for anything! Here’s my Preaching Playlist for April 2017. I encourage you to and hope that you will listen with me each day, or just pick a few from the list, it’s all up to you.
