An Audience of One

“A preacher should prepare and deliver sermons for the benefit of the congregation – it is not pleasing to God for a man to preach as if no one is there. But he must preach in a way that first and foremost will be pleasing to the Lord, seeking His approval by being a faithful minister of His Word, before considering whether the congregation will like it or not.” (Richard D. Phillips, The Masculine Mandate, p. 27)
