Subject: Great Preaching Advice


From time to time I have tried to give preaching advice.  It usually comes out muddled.  The great Pr. Esget has some great advice on preaching.  He boils it down to this:

  • Preach the Sunday.
  • Don't impose Law and Gospel as a structure  on each pericope. Most of them don't work that way, and you'll corrupt and distort the message of that text.
  • Preach expository sermons at least some of the time
  • Don't preach the cross without the resurrection.
  • Ignore most commentaries. They're useless. Do your own exegesis, and then read the fathers. Luther if you have time.

To which I can only add : Amen and Amen!
