Derek Thomas has written on “6 Advantages of Consecutive Expository Preaching,” or why we should preach through books of the Bible. His conclusions echo many of my own convictions. Personally, I am committed to expository preaching, which I mean to explain the text and apply it to daily life. In my sermons, I want to teach the whole counsel of God.

Whether I am preaching a book or a topic, I still strive to do exposition and balance explanation and application.
