Rough Preachers

Look at John the Baptist, “Now John himself was clothed in camel’s hair, with a leather belt around his waist; and his food was locusts and wild honey” (Matthew 3:4).
I wonder how many large churches would have given John an interview for their preacher job? John’s appearance was like his preaching, or his preaching was like his appearance. He did not wear fine clothing and he did not preach ear-tickling sermons.
He told people what God wanted them to hear.
Do you want to hear what God says, even if it comes from a rough-looking character?
