Sacred. That’s how most Christians view the Pulpit while the person standing “At the Pulpit” is at
most-questionable these days. Although we reverence and honor what the Pulpit represents; that is preaching the Word of God, we are taken-aback when we hear of so-called honorable men and
women acting in a not so honorable way. I’m sure we all can name a few people who have
in our society today misrepresented its meaning and caused much embarrassment to the body of Christ. Being “At the Pulpit” in not a sacred thing or place in itself, and can be viewed as a form and a fashion. It’s not necessarily a reflection of that person’s dedication to the Lord Jesus Christ. The
sacredness of the Pulpit lies in day to day decisions to live a consistent Christian lifestyle.We are God’s hand, feet and mouthpiece, so when we take our rightful places “At the Pulpit” whether in our homes, at our jobs, places of business and worship, we must be assured that we have first taken
our rightful places..AT THE FEET OF JESUS!

This is a great devotional reminder that preachers are human. I like your mentioning that we are "at the pulpit" and our lives are a sermon to others. Your ending sentence is powerful, that we need to first be at the feet of Jesus. Thank you for this.
