A Good Word on Preaching the Word!

The previous century saw the battle for the Bible waged in the church. Faithful Christians took a stand to defend the inspiration and inerrancy of the Scripture. Yet the battle for the credibility of Scripture continues. The battlefield is no longer biblical inspiration. It is now a fight over the sufficiency of Scripture. There are many pastors and churches that would readily affirm the Bible is the Word of God. But they turn to everything but Scripture to reach the lost, disciple the saints, lead the church, counsel the troubled, and impact the culture. We lack a true confidence in the Word of God. We almost apologize for it, constantly seeking to “make it relevant.” But if Scripture is not inherently relevant, you cannot make it so. Preaching through a book of the Bible can demonstrate the fundamental relevance of Scripture to your congregation as you tackle neglected texts that teach life-changing truths.
