Preaching Moment 338: Luke Powery on Faithful Preaching

“You can’t give what you ain’t got,” declares Luke Powery as he explains how one can become a better preacher when he or she begins with the excavation of his or her own soul.

“The word that you proclaim should be a word for you first, and if you ain’t got love, how can you really proclaim love? … If you don’t have hope, how do you preach hope? If you don’t have peace, how are you gonna preach peace?”
