Welcome to The On Preaching Podcast, the podcast dedicated to helping you preach faithfully, clearly, and better.
In this episode, I want to talk to you about the dynamics of Spirit-empowered preaching. I believe there are three characteristics of effective preaching: faithfulness to the text, clarity of the message, and passion in the presentation. When I speak of passion, I do not refer to some fleshly demonstration. Or the deacons in my Dad’s church would call, “An outside show to an unfriendly world.” I am talking about spirit-empower preaching.
What are the dynamics of Spirit-empowered preaching?
- Godly Character
- Doctrinal Conviction
- Pastoral Care
- Diligent Preparation
- Believing Prayer
- Reverent Delivery
- Spiritual Openness
What do you think is an essential dynamic of Spirit-empowered preaching?
- On Preaching by H.B. Charles Jr.
- Expository Exultation by John Piper
- Spirit-Led Preaching by Greg Heisler
I do not believe the reformation of Christian preaching, specifically expository preaching, is complete. In addition to a strong emphasis on the text of Scripture, we must place an equally strong emphasis on the Holy Spirit who empowers us to preach the Scriptures. – Greg Heisler
