You Are What You Preach
By: Wayne McDill

Like it or not, your own personality will so color your preaching as to be a determining factor in its effect with the audience.

Who you are as a person is as important as what you preach. Christianity is such that the messenger cannot divorce himself from the message. Neither can he step aside and become invisible as he preaches the message.

A salesman might sell Subarus while he drives a Buick, but the Christian preacher must allow the message to shape his life or he cannot preach.

You cannot be one kind of person and another kind of preacher.
