Fourteen years ago, I heard John MacArthur use an illustration that I have repeated innumerable times in discussions on Preaching. His words struck a chord that day, and continue to resonate and throb in my ministry today.
The preacher’s job is to get the food from the kitchen to the table without messing it up!
Simple, but profound.
Direct and forceful.
Everything that John MacArthur is renowned for.
I loved it!
Until this day, I had never heard anyone capture, or expand on, that same principle the way Guy Mason (Pastor at City on a Hill in Melbourne) has in his recent article posted on the Resurgence site.
For the praise of His glory!
