Chapter by chapter, text by text

Why We Believe In Systematic Expository Preaching, a beautiful essay by Andrew Roycroft. An excerpt:

I believe that the Bible is not a metal-tweezered promise box from which we can select our favourite passages and promises at random.
I believe that the pulpit is not a stable in which I get to show off my favourite hobby horses to a weary congregation.
I believe that the authority of the preacher is always secondary to the authority of Scripture as revealed by God.
I believe that the Scriptures are God breathed in their entirety, and that their structural integrity is part and parcel of how we come into contact with what God has said, and how God has said it.
I remember listening to Sunday preaching on the Gospel of John for all of my college life. What a feast for the soul it has been.

May the Lord prepare your hearts and minds for His Word faithfully preached this Sunday.

  1. Praise God for expository preaching at my church, too!
    But, wow, John for 4 years or more?
