One thing needed for better Youth Ministry preaching

I really enjoyed this post over on the Resurgence the other day about 5 things we do instead of preach the word, and saw some huge correlation to Youth Ministry Preaching . Number two on their list really hit a chord with me, here’s what it said…

“There are some things I just want to share with you today . . .”
Since when is the man of God some Dr. Phil and Oprah combo? You’re supposed to proclaim a message. If you’re not preaching, glory is not coming down. You have got to preach the glory down—people have to hear a word from God.

Like a ton of bricks. How often am I really delivering a message from God to the students he has entrusted me with, and not just simply talking about things that are temporal. I pray that God gives me a message each week, that he would lay a burden on me that I can’t shake.

I think Darrin Patrick says it pretty well:
“You know you’ve heard a good sermon when the preacher’s voice is drowned out by the voice of God through the text…”
