Guarding Against Self in Our Preaching

Brother pastors, as you prepare for Sunday are you intent
on showcasing God's wisdom or your own?  Are you preparing
for your people to hear from God, or hear from you?  Is it God's
Word you are preaching or your own?  Do you have more
confidence in your own word than God's word, or more 
confidence in your own machinations than the work of 
the Spirit?  
I Corinthians 2:1-5, Romans 1:16

The temptation for all of us is to serve ourselves and trust
ourselves rather than the Lord, even in our preaching.  Let 
us be like Joshua and chose this Lord's day to serve and
trust Him and Him alone in our preaching.
II Timothy 2:21
