I hope that this brief overview of expositional preaching has provided a helpful introduction on this subject for you. Make no mistake about it, whether you are a preaching or a Dad trying to find the right church for his family, expositional preaching should be important to you. Expositional preaching is the best method for fulfilling the biblical mandate to preach the word. This does not mean that expositional preaching is the only task of a healthy church. However, expositional preaching is a key element of a healthy church. Expositional preaching makes the pages of God’s word come alive for the modern day church goer. Through the faithful exposition of the bible God speaks His word to His people. Just as the Israelites were able to leave the presence of the prophets knowing that they had heard a word from the Lord, Christians can depart from their local church on Sunday knowing that they have heard a word from the Lord. But this can only happen if the preacher derives his message from the bible. Anything less than this will fall short of biblical preaching, and will leave God’s people spiritually malnourished.
Just in case you are still a little unclear about what this expositional preaching is, here are a list of places where you can listen to the best of expositional preaching:
Grace To You – You can now download all of John MacArthur’s sermons for free here.
Verse-by-Verse Radio – This is the radio ministry of Pastor Steve Kreloff. Pastor Kreloff is one of the best at expositional preaching, and one of my all time favorite preachers.
Grace Bible Church – This is my home church, and it is where you will get to hear the preaching ministry of Chris Pixley. At our site you can download our weekly sermons, or sign up for the podcast.
These certainly are not the only preachers doing expositional preaching, but they are three of my favorites. If you listen to these guys then you will certainly get a taste for expositional preaching.
