I’m sorry but I just can’t get past the first 5 words this morning.
“When Ephraim spoke men trembled”
I’m a preacher.
So I can say this…
No I won’t say it, I’ll just give you some quotes.
You will know what I am saying …
“It is a poor sermon that gives no offense; that neither makes the hearer displeased with himself nor with the preacher” ~George whitefield
“The preaching that this world needs most is the sermons in shoes that are walking with Jesus Christ.” ~ D.L. Moody
“We are too busy to pray, and so we are too busy to have power. We have a great deal of activity, but we accomplish little; many services but few conversions; much machinery but few results.” ~R.A. Torrey
“The scriptures are given not to increase our knowledge, but to change our
lives.” ~Dwight Moody
Men trembled when Ephraim spoke.
Think about it.
We are all preachers in some way or the other.
