A Sacred Sermon

And they have conquered him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony, for they loved not their lives even unto death. (Revelation 12:11)
Have you heard a sermon that was extremely encouraging and exactly what you needed at that moment? Think about how amazing it was, that God gave you a word right when you needed it. I am sure it was an unforgettable experience. What if God is calling you to share a word or a sermon with someone to meet them where they are and encourage them with what they need?
It can be intimidating to be the one to deliver the message rather than just receiving it. God does an amazing work when we are willing to share our experiences with others to help them along the same paths we have walked. We must not shy away from the opportunity to share when we have the chance to do so.  
Most of us think that a sermon must have at least three points and a poem, or an illustration that grabs our hearts. Sometimes, a sermon only needs one point. With many of us, one point is about all we can handle. It doesn’t have to be a fancy, well-rehearsed sermon. It doesn’t need to sound like a lecture from a seminary class. All it has to be is sitting across from a brother or sister in Christ and talking about how God has proven Himself faithful in your life.  
More than likely, God will lead you to preach a sacred sermon to someone who is going through circumstances similar to those you have experienced. If you sense God calling you to share a word with someone, obey His call and follow His lead. Will you share your story?
