Steve Lawson on Preaching

29 May

“Yesterday, Chris Ames and I attended the Institute for Expository Preaching taught by Dr. Steve Lawson of One Passion Ministries. It was a very encouraging and profitable day. Here are a few quotes I took away from the day.

“Preparing a sermon doesn’t take 10-15-20 hours per week. It takes a lifetime. Each sermon is the culmination of a lifetime of study and preparation.”

“God will honor the man who honors his word.”

“The preacher is the worship leader, not the worship pastor or music director. Preaching takes us much deeper into the word than a song ever can.”

“Someone once said that the Bible is a hymnal–It’s all about HIM.”

“Trinitarian preaching is God-exalting, Christ-centered, and Spirit-empowered.”

“As Spurgeon mounted the 15 steps into his pulpit each week, he said on each step, ‘I believe in the Holy Spirit.'”

“_______ said, ‘I’d rather try to fly to the moon on a broomstick than preach without the power of the Holy Spirit.'”

“The Holy Spirit uses what you have put into your mind and heart. The more tools you have, the more you can do.”

“Great preaching should have the effect of igniting the hearts of the listener.”

“Rather than the danger of being too dogmatic in our preaching, most of us face the danger of trying to please people.”

“We don’t always need to act like Moses on Sinai bringing the thunder down. People are living in a war zone today and need hope.”
