Information: A message prepared and delivered by a mind, reaches a mind. Inspiration: The testimony of a burning heart reaches a heart.
God is looking for a burning heart; not for doctrinal charts.
“I would rather teach one man to pray than ten men to preach.” –Charles Spurgeon
– “Preaching” In Early Salvation Army Meetings –
“William Booth clearly favored short sermons, even a serious of short sermons interspersed with singing and prayers. He preferred sermons that were mainly exhortations, free of theological or doctrinal arguments . . . The ‘parcel’ sermon — delivering choice items throughout the meeting — was described by William Corbridge in the following manner: ‘I believe,’ he stated, ‘in preaching a sermon sometimes, but not of the ordinary kind. Deal out the medicine in nice doses, and let there be a mixture all the way through (the meeting) — not one thing continually.’” –R.G. Moyles (Come Join Our Army, Crest Books, USA.)
