    Preaching quotes by:    

The Word of God can grow to be only a hunting-ground for texts; and we can preach, meaning intensely every word we utter, and yet in reality only lost for the moment like an actor in his part, or at least leaving it to the folk to live it out; for us, bless me, we have no time for that, but are already immersed, poor harried souls, in determining what we shall preach on next.

Hundreds of men are hoarse from continual speaking, and are wearied out with running here and running there. If things slow down, we evolve yet another type of meeting. And when this new and added wheel is spinning merrily with all the other wheels, there may be no spiritual outcome whatsoever, but there is a wind blowing in our faces; and we hot and sticky engineers have a comfortable feeling that something is going on.

Many a preacher misses the mark because, though he knows books, he does not know men.

    Author: James Stalker

You occasionally hear a preacher who can quote a text so that it becomes transfigured and shines in his argument like a gem. What gives this power?

To leave this matter of saving souls to preachers is not only heartless; it is inexcusably wicked.

    Author: John R. Rice

Only once did God choose a completely sinless preacher.

    Author: Alexander Whyte

Some preachers never appreciate the compliment given them when a saint disagrees with the pastor's exposition of a text. At least the Christian under his care is devoted more to Scripture than to the man in the pulpit. Under his ministry the child of God has reached a maturity to think through issues for himself and has imbibed a Berean spirit (Acts 17:11).

There is nothing wrong with America that cannot be cured by old-fashioned preaching.

Preaching is fire in the pulpit that melts the ice in the pew.

    Author: Jack Hyles

Preaching is sin's greatest adversary.
