Preach for eternity

When the great Thomas Chalmers was converted, even though he had been a minister for several years, it led to a seismic shift in his preaching. Gone were the days filled with mathematical and scientific studies, with but an hour or two on a Saturday evening given to sermon preparation.

In its place there was a "sense of seriousness unfelt before; and the world to come cast an aweful shadow over every sermon."

If this Sunday you are preaching the word, or listening to it, may this be your experience too.
