Preaching and encouragement

Ray Ortlund offers some outstanding advice on preaching and encouragement. Here's a sample:
Do we find encouragement in one another? Sometimes. But that supply is limited. We come together at church not to amass the encouragement we bring in but to receive the encouragement he is pouring out. If we come to church only to draw strength from one another, that’s all we’ll get. And we will end up empty and angry at one another. Putting community first destroys community. Our encouragement is in Christ, and he is inexhaustible.
Amen. I recommend reading the whole article.
