Preachers Dorm

Well it is just interesting to me how this works sometimes. When I sit down of my own volition to "prepare/write" a message I just really have a hard time. However, if I am asked to preach or if someone simply asks me a question about the bible, I tell you you better have 1/2 an hour or better for me to answer you.

I can even explain the mechanics of preaching and how to prepare a message to others, yet when it is time for me to do it I find great difficulty.

I also find that I can get in preachy moods. These have all to do with how in the Word or not I am or have been. If I have really been in the Word I will be really preaching I can't help it, it just comes out. This can not result in others preaching to me it has to be personal revelation. I think God does this to me to keep me accountable.

Tuesdays we have been going through the Omega Course by Mick Bickle at IHOP KC, but tonight we are ending our study. My prayer is to rekindle what I used to call the "Preachers Dorm" This was a group of guys I lived with in Bible College that would tag team preach, worship, and then do altar calls. These were powerful times that I hope will once again be renewed on these Tuesday Nights. I also believe it will be a time for others to express their giftings.
