A GOOD CHRISTIAN PREACHER WILL PREACH THE WORD

This first word of advice should go without saying, which probably means we need to say it a lot: _preach the Word._ Be committed from the outset of your ministry to expository preaching. What is expository preaching? It’s when the preacher _makes the point of the text to be the point of his sermon, which is then applied to the congregation.

While in the Seminary, one question I observed we were wrestling with was: _Am I really going to spend 10 or 15 or 20 hours each week using my seminary training to get at the meaning of the text?_ The longer I am Patriarch, the more amazed I am at how steadily preaching the Word imparts a broad and deep spiritual health to the congregation.

Let regular exposition be the heartbeat and the respiration that pumps the life-giving Spirit throughout the Body of Christ, week after week.
