Sticking to the Scriptures also helps us focus on what God says is most important. Scripture is what trains us in righteousness 2 Timothy , prepares us for ministry 2 Timothy , and leads us to the person and work of Jesus Christ John Reading the Bible can be confusing.
When a preacher faithfully preaches the Scripture and explains how he draws conclusions from the Scripture, the congregation sees faithful Bible reading modeled and are more equipped to do it themselves. This is the benefit of expository preaching: congregants will not depend on preaching as their only source of nourishment, but will over time grow in their ability to feed on Scripture themselves, and thus further their own Christian maturity. Good expository preaching explains how the biblical text for the sermon fits in the whole of the Bible.
Listeners will know better how the Old Testament anticipates Christ and how the New Testament describes the life, death, and resurrection of Christ along with the birth and growth of the early church. Expository preaching gives listeners and their pastors a love for their Bibles. It is my meditation all the day. Expository preaching equips congregation members for a personal ministry of the Word.
This is one goal of the Fellowship of the Word program —for pastors we train in the Scriptures to create an expository culture in their church with many congregation members ministering to each other with the Word in the power of the Spirit Learn More. God is not relying on the sufficiency of our craft or character to accomplish his purposes 2 Cor.
God certainly can use eloquence and desires lives befitting the sanctity of our subject matter, but His Spirit uses the Word itself to fulfill his saving and sanctifying purposes. It tends to undermine confidence… in Scripture. If you got a letter from a friend in the mail, you would not begin reading half-way through, or only read your two favorite sentences—you would start at the beginning and continue reading until the end. We should treat each book of the Bible the same way in preaching. We need the truth of Scripture to defend against the lies presented by the world, the flesh, and the devil.
Expository preaching, by unfolding the Bible, equips the church to fight against the enemy by arming them with the sword of the Spirit Ephesians and giving them the faith they need as a shield against the flaming darts of the evil one Ephesians ; Romans Preachers who seek to expound the truth of Scripture will apply its truth to their own lives. A preacher transformed by God privately can better communicate His truth publicly. Instead of having to prepare fresh material week after week for years, expository preaching sets the agenda and makes sermon planning easier.
In a sense, the heart of the message is already written—preachers simply need to study the text and write a clear message proclaiming and applying its important truths. This also makes it easier for preachers to serve a long tenure in the same place—there is always something new to preach. Consider Psalm 1 or the parables of Jesus.
Expository preaching forces preachers to touch on uncomfortable texts of Scripture. Instead of avoiding difficult topics, expository preaching naturally brings up difficult texts with controversial topics that force preachers work to understand a passage. This is good because all of Scripture is inspired by God and profitable 2 Timothy One can conclude that if Paul had failed to teach the whole counsel of God, he would be guilty before God for holding back truth. Expository preaching lets the Word set the agenda, and aids the pastor in declaring the whole counsel of God.
Expository preaching keeps the pastor from saddling up one of his hobby horses. Many pastors have topics of interest that they talk about every chance they get. False teachers are promised in Scripture. We are all sinners in need of a Savior. Jesus made it clear in John that all Scriptures testify about Him and that those who come to Him in faith will find life.
