  • Amos Winarto Oei STT Aletheia



Sermon, Faith, Holy Spirit, Annointing

On the other, there are preachers who even afraid of experiencing that power in their sermon. What is a Spirit-anointed sermon? Why also are there preachers who are even afraid of that anointing power? And how does a preacher nurture his/her faith in the Holy Spirit to empower a sermon? This article attempts to answer those question.
