Why Do You Preach?

The 'why' of things is as important as the 'how' of things. There has been a lot of focus on this blog on the how of preaching, but I want to spend a bit of time on the why.

On Sunday I remembered my call to preaching. It's not something I can contain or avoid. When I read scripture or books or just about anything, my brain moves to figuring out how to preach it. When I hear the context of a congregation or a person, I think about what a sermon would look like to address those issues. So, for me, I preach because I feel called and equipped to preach.
