I was skimming through Criswell’s Guidebook for Pastors and came across this quote, which caught my attention because it expresses my exact sentiment when it comes to deciding what to preach.
“A remarkable thing happens when a pastor preaches through a book of the Bible. Too many preachers walk up and down their studies wringing their hands, crying: ‘What shall I preach? And where can I get the pertinent material I need for my listening saints?’
I also walk up and down my study, but my cry is altogether different. There is so much to preach, and so much God has said that I am afraid I am going to die before I have delivered the messages that I see in God’s book.” – p. 61
I often find myself struggling to decide which book to preach through, not because I don’t want to preach certain books, but because there is so much to choose from!
