Preach the WORD

20 Aug

“It is significant that whenever Scripture gives instructions to preachers, the theme is always the same. We are to preach the sure Word of God, and nothing else (not our opinions, pop culture, political agendas, dreams, personal visions, or other speculative notions). We are to preach scripture faithfully in season and out of season (2 Timothy 4:2); whether it’s easy or hard; whether people respond enthusiastically or not. The Bible is the only message we are authorized to preach in Christ’s name. Anything and everything else is a corruption of the preacher’s high calling.”

John MacArthur, in “The Preacher and his Bible,” Expositor magazine, July/August 2015
