THE FRUIT OF GOOD PREACHING

“With all the glory and power of the public preaching of the Word, I am convinced that, too often, something is missing. A significant part of God’s plan for the proclamation of the Word lacks the prominence that it should have in the public moment of exposition. This remarkable weekly moment of truth declaration must be shaped by a recognition of the church’s call to both a public and private ministry of the Word. Good preaching should create a community of counselors.” (Paul Tripp)
