Do you take preaching seriously?

Many professing Christians do not. While they will indeed pay attention and perhaps even take a few notes during the sermon, it seems that few understand and appreciate what actually happens when the Bible is preached by men who are sufficiently gifted and duly approved and called to the sacred office.

If more Christians did take preaching seriously, they would not only attend unto preaching with diligence, preparation, and prayer but they would also receive, meditate upon, and allow the truths preached to bring forth fruits of repentance, faith, and holiness in their lives.

God calls you to take preaching seriously:

“For this reason we also thank God without ceasing: because when you received the word of God which you heard from us, you welcomed it not as the word of men, but as it is in truth, the word of God, which also effectively works in you who believe.” (1 Thess. 2:13)
