We had a student chaplain at my college (a few years ago) who, as a regular part of his messages, would basically mope (I don't know any other word for it). He would speak about how he was so discouraged when he saw his own sin, and say things like, "I'm no good," "I probably shouldn't even be the chaplain," "I don't know if this message is doing you any good, but I'm just being honest with you guys. I don't want to be a hipocrite and act all happy. [not exact words, but that's the general sentiment]. 2 questions: 1. Is this line of thinking biblical humility, or does it fail to see and accept the total forgiveness offered by the gospel? 2. If I as a pastor or worship leader am actually feeling this way some Sunday, is it appropriate to let my depressed demeanor come through in my sermon/speaking, so as to be "honest." Or does it better serve the congregation if I try to try to deal with God before the sermon the best I can, but if I'm still feeling "down", try to preach with confidence that God can use my words, and try to encourage the congregation to hope in God, even if I'm having a bad day? (Some would say this is deceptive). I favor the second course of action, but what are your thoughts?
