Why expositional preaching? Our job as preachers is to instill the logic of God in the minds of His people. His logic unfolds as the verses of the Bible uncoil. He gives His truth one paragraph at a time, and as we study the threads of thought linking the sentences of Scripture, we are, in effect, studying the synapses of God’s mind. Yes, there’s a place for some topical and textual and need-based sermonizing. But establishing a Christ-like mind and growing a mature flock of believers require a preacher who stands in God’s counsel and rightly divides the Word of God as an expositor, providing application, one rich passage at a time.
