Preaching Contingency

The Point

Preachers who do not walk and live and breath every moment in God’s voice can’t preach God’s voice. They will pack their sermons full of contingency plan after contingency plan for how to survive without God’s moment by moment directions. So, Bible teachers prepare their audiences to attempt the impossible: to survive when God doesn’t show up.

But, God isn’t going anywhere and He hasn’t gone anywhere.

When we can’t hear God’s voice, we don’t need contingency plans; we need to connect with Him so we can hear Him. Studying contingency plans, rather than studying His voice, won’t achieve that.
