“What Is Expository Preaching, And Why Is It Necessary?”
“And I thank Christ Jesus our Lord, who hath enabled me, for that he counted me faithful, putting me into the ministry;” 1 Timothy 1:12
Brothers, our abilities are of God, who put us into the ministry. We have neither power nor talent apart from Him.
We dare not puff ourselves up with the thought that we are doing a good job, and thus rely upon ourselves.
We must not think that we win people by our personalities/
We should never think that our logical thoughts and rhetorical skills are sufficient for the souls of men.
It is God who enables us, and without Him we can do nothing.
Brothers, let us always recognize our need for God and trust Him who will enable us.
