Preparing ourselves to preach

It's probably worth wading through all the page ads to read this article by John Ortberg on preparing ourselves to preach:
How do we prepare our souls for this task? We are fallible people, yet we are to speak for God, so our preparation is not just getting our spiritual life "amped up" for a weekend service. It is a way of life: "What kind of person am I becoming so that preaching is the outflow of a certain kind of life, and it comes out of me in a way that God wants it to come out?" This means we should prepare our souls not just for a week of preaching, but for a life of preaching.

I agree w/John that we must prepare for a life of preaching, not just for a weekend service. I believe his statement applies across the board for any type of ministry.

Even if a teacher memorizes every word of the lesson, it will still be delivered in a way that is shaped by his/her lifestyle.
