Saturday Night Special

This is primarily for pastors. I just read that Preaching Today reports the most downloads of its message manuscripts happen on Saturday. Outside of the fact that downloading sermon manuscripts hardly equals sermon preparation, to wait until Saturday to prepare a sermon is definitely not giving God your best effort, nor is it giving the people to whom you preach the best opportunity to experience God's word.

Pastors, the Sunday morning message is the most important task you will undertake all week long. Make it a priority and not an afterthought. Sure, things come up that make it difficult to prepare your messages, but when the preparation of your message is THE priority for your week, its amazing how much easier it is to be prepared on Sunday. Take the time and give God and your people your best effort. God will be glorified and they will be edified.
