Why Expository Preaching?

Here is a good post by Mike Pohlman, mostly referring to DA Carson, on why we should preach expositionally.

  1. I decided I needed to do more reading, but as usual I could not decide where to start. I have at least three problems. First, starting. Then sticking to it without distraction, and finally finishing. Is the last one even possible??

    I finally gave up and started at the beginning in Genesis. I've read these chapters many times in starting before. I can remember asking the Spirit to show me something I hadn't seen before. I read through the genealogies before the flood noting the same thing I'd noticed many times before. They lived a long time back then, and had lots of kids. Went through the flood, and then noticed something that just jumped off the page.

    "While the earth remains, seedtime and harvest, cold and heat, summer and winter, day and night, shall not cease."

    That is some promise! If you trust God, if I trust God, then there is no reason to fear the doomsday scenarios that world leaders put forward. They just will not happen.

    This promise is immense, yet it pales when you ponder the powerful statement of redemption and the promise Jesus is able to deliver on because of the Cross. "I will never leave you, or forsake you." "I give them eternal life, and they will never perish, and no one will snatch them out of my hand. My Father who has given them to me is greater than all, and no one is able to snatch them out of the Father's hand. I and the Father are one."

    Now that's awesome if you have the faith to believe it. Now walk in the power of that faith... there's the challenge.




About Me

I am a husband to Eva, father of 4, pastor, and most of all passionate follower of Jesus Christ. The focus of my life is to make the most of every opportunity God gives me to bring glory to Him. Outside of the time spent in my role as a pastor, I spend most of my time with my family -- a good deal of that coaching various sports teams that my children are involved with. Every fall and winter you will find me rushing to the woods of Indiana and West Virginia in search of a monster whitetail buck.
