John MacArthur’s Sermon Prep

“And I could tell you, I’ve been asked on several occasions for whom do I prepare my sermons? One reporter said to me, ‘Newspapers are written for the eighth grade, for whom do you prepare your sermons?’ And I said, ‘You might not understand this, but I prepare them for God. My only concern is that God be pleased and His name be honored and His Word be treated fairly and honestly.’ And if I feel that I have done less than my best in that way, life becomes miserable at the deepest level for me.”
