No You’re Not (Radio / Podcast)

preach the word; be ready in season and out of season; reprove, rebuke, and exhort, with complete patience and teaching.
(2 Timothy 4:2 – ESV)

You are not preaching the Word if you are not preaching

· the whole counsel of God
· the Word being Christ, redemptive history
· gospel saturated more than morally motivated

You are not up to the biblical standard of preaching if you are not ready

. in season (comfortable atmosphere)
. out of season (confrontational atmosphere)

You are not preaching the Word if that word doesn’t ever

. reprove (expose)
. rebuke (correct)
. exhort (encourage)

You are not truly preaching as you ought if it is not done with

. complete patience (done by following the process of expose, correct, and encourage)
. teaching (instruction is more than just inspiration)

For the time will come, to all preachers, the test of fidelity

2 Corinthians 2:17 / 1 Thessalonians 2:3-6 / 2 Peter 2:1-3

With much of this post, we are talking about more than a single message...You obviously cannot do all of this in every single sermon, we are talking about preaching over a period of time...this is what a preacher's sermons should be "doing"...

You are so wonderful! I must be a reflection of your affect on me as you reflect Christ in you.
