My former pastor, Rick Warren, often says that pastors are the greatest change agents in the world. I agree, and I believe that preaching is one of the most powerful vehicles for making real, spiritual change happen.
Preaching changes people by pointing them toward the beauty of Christ and the truth of the gospel that reshapes everything about who we are.
Preaching changes churches as the body grows and gets healthier together.
Preaching changes communities and cultures by restoring the broken, reviving hope, and raising up Christ as the standard of love.
