Imagine you are doing a sermon that calls for you to be devoted to pray or evangelise, but you neither are devoted to prayer or evangelising. You are committed to the truth of these things, but the reality is that when it comes to doing these things, you are not much different to an unbeliever. It seems to me that you can do one of three things;
1) Preach it and acknowledge that you are a hypocrite, unfaithful in this area
2) Don't preach it until you are faithfully doing it yourself
3) Preach it as though it was just God preaching to the hearers, and you are just another hearer
To me number 3) is not a good option.
