“a feeling of desperation”

“…all genuine preacing is rooted in a feeling of desperation. The preacher wakes up on the Lord’s Day morning and he can smell the smoke of hell on one side and feel the crisp breezes of heaven on the other. he then looks down at his pitiful notes and he says to himself, ‘Who do I think I am kidding? Is this all there is? Though oftentimes a source of great anxiety, this is the proper conclusion for the preacher of the cross. He is ever mindful of his inadequacies in relationship to the immensity of the task at hand” (Atruro Azurdia, Spirit Empowered Preaching, p. 92).
