Sermon Risks

I’m preaching Sunday.  I sometimes have mini-sermonettes while I lead worship.  I feel like my part of my job is to be a pastor with a guitar.  Not the fella who picks out the songs.

But this week, I get the honor of opening up the Word of Life for the North Side family.

And I’ve got that feeling.  I feel like it is a clear direction for my message, but I don’t know how everyone will handle it.  I don’t know if it will work.  There’s a chance it might blow up in my face.

It’s kind of a risk.

What do you do in these moments?

You go with it.  If you are in the Word, praying to hear from the Spirit, and the leading you are feeling will allow God to be on display instead of an attempt to have everyone impressed with you, you take that risk and trust God with the results.

I can’t wait to get out-of-the-way Sunday and see what God does.
