Why preaching

Eight reasons for biblical preaching by Sam Storms:

  • We must preach because of the power of the Word of God to change human lives and to transform the experience of the church.
  • We must preach because preaching is God’s ordained means for making himself known to us.
  • We must preach because preaching not only communicates truth about God, it also mediates the very person and power of God.
  • We must preach because preaching (aside from reading) is the most effective means for transmitting the truths of Holy Scripture.
  • We must preach because preaching is the fuel for worship. Preaching fans the flames of passion for Jesus.
  • We must preach because preaching is not simply the fuel for worship, preaching is worship.
  • We must preach because preaching is the catalyst for church growth, renewal, and revival.
  • We must preach because preaching is the means by which the glory of God is revealed and imparted to those who listen with faith.

Peter serves as a pastor-teacher, at home and abroad, resourcing gospel-centred communities.
