3 Things You Can Do Right Away
How do we begin to step into the changes of facing Christianity in the midst of cultural changes? Ravi Zacharias emphasizes how leaders need to shape and sharpen our messages to have a more powerful impact.
- The message has to be interesting. If it’s not interesting, we’re competing against a world that has a scorching paganism, and you can’t put tepid Christianity beside it.
- Effective preaching needs to be intellectually rigorous. Preachers need to fully engage the mind and the heart. Without the heart, intellect becomes intellectualism.
- Effective preaching needs to be emotionally connected. Preachers need to fully engage the heart and the mind. Without the mind, emotional preaching becomes emotionalism.
