The Heart of the Preacher

“Watch over your heart with all diligence, For from it flow the springs of life.” (Proverbs 4:23)

You can teach the craft, but you must first form the heart.

Preaching involves more than the steps from a text to a sermon, because every time a preacher stands up to preach, their character shines through—for better or for worse.

Dr. Rick Reed joins us to talk about the personal heart preparation required before any preacher is ready to preach.
