Messages behind the message

Peter Mead asks preachers what convictions we convey, not through the words of our preaching, but through our whole being in preaching:
Over time, listeners catch things from the preachers they hear. Its not just the content of each particular sermon, but also the personal convictions of the preacher that will mark listeners over time.

What do listeners catch from hearing you? Do they catch a conviction that God’s Word can be trusted? That it is enjoyable to read and study? That God is knowable? That God is in control? That Christianity is firmly founded on fact? That we are deeply loved? That . . .
Good questions.
