Expositional Preaching

Pastor Jay begins his “Vital Signs of a Health Church” series this week with a message titled “Expositional Preaching,” from 2 Timothy 4:2-3.

2 Timothy 4:2-3 (ESV)

“…preach the word; be ready in season and out of season; reprove, rebuke, and exhort, with complete patience and teaching. For the time is coming when people will not endure sound teaching, but having itching ears they will accumulate for themselves teachers to suit their own passions…”

We should choose a steady diet of expositional preaching.

  • We accustom ourselves to listening to God’s word.
  • People need to hear the whole counsel of God.
  • People need to hear the preponderance of scripture.
  • People need to avoid the danger of warping scripture.
  • People need to avoid the danger of replacing scripture with the doctrine of men.
