Preaching from the Pews

Woman Caught in Adultery, by He Qi, China

This Sunday I preached from John 8:1-11 – Stones of Judgement (coming soon).  The fun part was that near the beginning of the sermon my words struck a deep chord in a lady in the front row and she began preaching my sermon for me!  The best part was that she was saying exactly what I was going to say and yet she spoke the words out of a place of deep brokenness.  I noticed that the congregation was far more moved than I imagine they would have been if I had spoken the words.  I love watching how God takes a moment and makes the most of it.
