The important preaching question for ME not YOU

I wrote here that quality preaching involved questions.

The most important question is one I'm struggling with currently as I'm preaching this Sunday.

What is God teaching ME from this passage?

Sometimes, the only questions posed in sermon are...
What can God teach YOU?
What should YOU do in response?

In theory, the sermon and its implications should first impact the person giving the sermon and, from this, the application questions then flow into the homily.
