To preach well:
“is to make truth intelligible, forcible, triumphant; it is to clear away from the Bible false glosses, and present it in its native purity, and clothe it with the attributes of a living instructor; it is to give to the written doctrine, the tenderness and pathos, the authority and force, with which it was first clothed by the inspired writers.”
Please pray for your pastor. Pray that he will preach this way every time he opens God’s Word. Pray that he will always exalt Jesus as the risen Lord and Savior and never compromise the truth of God’s Word.
Pastor Mike Walters
P.S. I found this quote from in Richard Baxter’s Christian Directory. Richard Baxter was an British Puritan Pastor in the 1600’s. This quote is from Bishop Wilson who was introducing one of Baxter’s works.
