The term writer’s block is used when a writer loses creativity to come up with a new or continuing idea for their project. I sense preachers struggle with a similar block when I hear a sermon based on two verses of Scripture fluffed up by filler, video, jokes and anecdotes. Whether a Christian writer or a preacher, if we simply rely on our own understanding and creative ability we underestimate the power of the Gospel. “For the word of God is living and active. Sharper than any double–edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart” (Heb 4:12 NIV).
