Be Diligent to Present Yourself Approved to God
2 Tim. 2:15a
I had been preaching for a couple of years whenever I was invited to do so. And everyone was very appreciative and complimentary. Looking back, I realize that they may not have been completely honest. As I mentioned earlier, I didn’t know what I was doing. Worse yet, I didn’t realize that I didn’t know what I was doing. Fortunately, I did know that I needed some further training of some kind. My first semester in seminary I was placed into a homiletics class. Homiletics, as I had to learn, referred to the art of preaching. I figured it couldn’t be too difficult. After all, I had been preaching for a while.
