Preaching the Gospel

People are brought to faith in Jesus Christ
not because a preacher happens to be exceptionally
dynamic one Sunday morning, or because he finishes
his sermon with a spellbinding story.  Rather, in a
mysterious work that is both sovereign in expression
and divine in origin, the power of God unites with the
proclamation of the word of God and produces effects
that are in keeping with the purposes of God.

Then the Lord said to me, "You have seen well,
for I am watching over My word to perform it."
Jeremiah 1:12
