What are You Preaching Pastor?

8 Reasons for Biblical Preaching ......Over at Enjoying God Ministrie s , Sam Storms , gives some helpful instruction on preaching. Why and How Should We Preach, Sam gives us eight reasons why pastors should be committed to biblical preaching. 1.We must preach because of the power of the Word of God to change human lives and to transform the experience of the church. 2.We must preach because preaching is God's ordained means for making himself known to us. 3.We must preach because preaching not only communicates truth about God, it also mediates the very person and power of God. 4.We must preach because preaching (aside from reading) is the most effective means for transmitting the truths of Holy Scripture. 5.We must preach because preaching is the fuel for worship.
