Dispassionate Preaching Is An Oxymoron

A good reminder from “the Doctor,” Martyn Lloyd Jones, as I prepare my heart and mind to herald God’s Word tomorrow morning:

Preaching is theology coming through a man who is on fire. A true understanding and experience of the Truth must lead to this. I say again that a man who can speak about these things dispassionately has no right whatsoever to be in a pulpit; and should never be allowed to enter one. – Martyn Lloyd Jones, Preachers and Preaching, 97.
