Preachers: Do You Expect Power?

"Seek Him always. But go beyond seeking Him; expect Him. Do you expect anything to happen when you get up to preach in a pulpit? Or do you just say to yourself, 'Well, I have prepared my address, I am going to give them this address; some of them will appreciate it and some will not'? Are you expecting it to be the turning point in someone's life...? That is what preaching is meant to do...Seek this power, expect this power, yearn for this power; and when the power comes, yield to Him."

-Lloyd-Jones, quoted in He is Not Silent, p. 47.
