Convictions Aren't Taught, But Forged

Preaching with conviction, passion, and urgency cannot be taught and made into a sermon step. Only when we linger long in God's presence and soak in his Word and allow his Spirit to saturate our lives can we preach under the divine imperative with conviction and power. Preach fresh from the presence of God, and you will preach with fire, and people will leave saying, "Surely the presence of the Lord was in this place today!"

-- Greg Heisler, Spirit-Led Preaching, p.79
