The Voice – Part 16

Are we being fed … or entertained?

“I so love the way he speaks, don’t you!” As soon as I hear a recording of Dr Martyn Lloyd Jones’ preaching, I am drawn to it as a moth to a bright lamp. The Doctor holds me fascinated as he proclaims God’s Word in ringing tones that are unmistakable. His vocabulary range, his enunciation, that Welsh intonation … although long dead, he speaks through the years with an authority that appeals to me enormously! I love it!

I would know David Pawson’s voice anywhere. The clarity of his delivery and his personable style are truly memorable and eminently appealing. I love it!

I guess we all have our favourites. Gifted preachers have been given that ability by the Lord. We love to hear them and will travel miles in order to do so. But why has the Lord so gifted them as communicators? What am I listening for? A brilliant exposition to thrill my longing to be entertained or a clear declaration of God’s Holy Word to shake my indolence?
