The first sermon preached each Sunday is not by the pastor, but by you.
You preach a message of good cheer when you say "Good Morning" to those
you meet as you are parking or are near the church door.
You preach a message of welcome when you slide over in the pew instead
of forcing others to squeeze in front of you.
You preach a message of hope and joy when you sing the hymns.
You preach a message about the power of prayer when you let someone know
you are praying for them.
You preach a message of love when you smile and say hello to a visitor.
You preach a message about the importance of the Scriptures when you
listen carefully to the Bible being read.
You preach a message of faith when you share a prayer request.
You preach a message of encouragement when you voice a praise to the Lord.
Many messages are preached before the pastor stands to share the sermon.
If your message is positive, faithful and consistent, then the message
from the pulpit will be more effective. Go to church this Sunday and
every Sunday, prepared to preach your best sermon.
