Prior to preaching, I sometimes pray that there will be R.C.A.: revelation, conviction and action.
Revelation - head - seeing something anew
Conviction - heart - being griped by it, compelled by it
Action - hands - doers of the word; real life change.
Preachers must preach for conviction and change. No one ought ever to leave a sermon without having a very real sense that there is something in their lives they need to do something about.Feed My Sheep, ed. Don Kistler, Soli Deo Gloria Ministries, 2002, p. 225.
