In a time of great compromise and controversy as it relates to the message of Jesus Christ, the role of the preacher must be clearly defined so that the purpose for which he has been called is fulfilled. The preacher is labeled as everything from a motivational speaker and mentor, to a counselor and spiritual advisor. With the many expectations that are often attached to his role in the ministry, he deals with personal failures and struggles behind closed doors - often wearing the mask to hide who he really is from the congregation, his family, and sometimes even from God. Unmasking the Preacher examines the role, purpose and destiny of the preacher as defined by scripture. It is here that the preacher can rely on the Word of God to be his guidance for every challenge he will face both in and out of the pulpit. Growth in his relationship with God will help him balance his life and the demands of ministry, without giving in to the temptation of forfeiting his assignment and calling. When the preacher becomes self-exposed, self-sacrificed, and selfless to the ministry, it is then that he can remove the mask and stand before others with a compassion and conviction of living an acceptable lifestyle before God. Unmasking the Preacher presents a unique guide for ministers to transform from a hidden place of fear to an open altar before God where the same healing and deliverance they preach about, they can receive in areas of their own lives. Whether you are reading this book as a pastor, or you have just been ordained as a minister, you need to know that it is God s desire to maximize your gifts, talents and abilities through the anointing of His spirit. So allow yourself to look beyond your limitations and rely on your faith to see what God sees in you. On the road to destiny, let s unmask ourselves before Him without fear and reservation. As you read through the pages, you will learn how to discipline your character to reflect Christ-like characteristics. There will be many things you can relate to, as well as scripture based references for you to study and refer to during your journey. When you allow yourself to be totally unmasked, Jesus will be the only image the world will ever see, and His glory will be revealed in your life.
