R. Albert Mohler, one of the contributors to Feed My Sheep, agrees that Gods word cannot exist without God's people, but he completes the quote from Martin Luther "...... and conversely God's people cannot exist without God's word." Furthermore Paul argued for the word to be preached:
of which I became a minister according to the divine office which was given to me for you, to make the word of God fully known, the mystery hidden for ages and generations but now made manifest to his saints. (Colossians 1:25-26 RSV)
It is the Pastor's job to proclaim God's word to inspire the listener to seek the will of God and to correct the hearers of God's word in any misimpression of God's written word and direct disobedience to God's word:
Him we proclaim, warning every man and teaching every man in all wisdom, that we may present every man mature in Christ.
(Colossians 1:28 RSV)
John Montgomery Boice tells how God chooses to bring salvation into a person's life. The proclaimed word of God should tell of man's sinful state and his ultimate destination is hell. No one can avoid his just reward unless another takes the punishment for his sin. Jesus has done this for those who accept Him as Lord and Savior. God chooses man to spread the good news. Through the Holy Spirit God works upon man's heart.Read more ›
Naturally some chapters are better than others, here are a few:
"The Lasting Effect of Experimental Preaching"--the essay on spiritual formation--worth the price of the book.
"The Primacy of Preaching"--by Albert Mohler--very good, a wake up call to the church.
"Expository Preaching"--good and bad examples of expository preaching, very fun chapter.
"Preaching to Suffering People"--by John Piper. It is by Piper, enough said.
"A reminder to Shepherds"--By John Macarthur, a fitting close to a fine book.
I also love preachers. I feel greatly indebted to the men who have given their lives to the public proclamation of God's Word. I love to read their sermons. I love to read their books. I love to learn about them, their lives, and their faith. I just am sincerely blessed by God-fearing Bible-believing Gospel preachers. So when I had the opportunity through the program with Reformation Trust Publishing([...]) to read this book and review it, I was eager to do so.
The contributors to this text are top notch. The topics they cover are varied and interesting. As I began reading this book, I was quite excited--diving through the first four chapters in no time.
Al Mohler's chapter entitled, "The Primacy of Preaching," sets out to support the argument that "we must affirm with Martin Luther that the preaching of the Word is the first essential mark of the church", and I must confess that Mohler does an excellent job of this. He then goes to work recollecting the neo-orthodox recovery of preaching under HH Farmer. The section of his chapter that most ministered to me was the one entitled, "Hidden Results, Frequent Controversies". In this section, Mohler shows what I believe to be the toughest challenge facing men who sincerely desires to faithfully proclaim God's Word.
The preacher may sound like Luther on Sunday, but he feels like bathing in Ecclesiastes on Monday morning: "Vanity, vanity, all is vanity." Preaching can seem like striving after the wind.Read more ›
The book calls pastors to preach God's word in their churches. This sounds simple, but the truth is many preachers spend much time in the pulpit entertaining their congregations. The authors call modern pastors to preach God's Word and to hold nothing back. Pastors are called to deliver God's message of salvation unflinchingly and to refrain from fads, styles and popular topics.
If pastors are not causing their hearers to squirm they are not focusing on the gospel. God's Word is offensive to sinners and they should be convicted when hearing it. Gospel messages that make us feel good about our sinful state and help us learn how to fit Christ into our busy lives are not Christ centered, but man centered.
Rarely do you hear a church described, first and foremost, by the character, power, and content of its preaching. This is because few preachers today are true servants of the Word. The authors tell us the gospel is the most transformative, the most powerful, and the most explosive message there is. If pastors have a problem finding something to preach, then they are not preaching the gospel.
Preachers that pander to the sinner and avoid preaching the convicting truth of the Bible are not honoring our Father in their ministry. Jesus called pastors to fulltime ministry to shake listeners from their man-centered life and into a life dedicated to him.Read more ›
