Expositional Preaching: Letting God set the Agenda

How does expositional preaching work? Expositional preaching begins when the pastor decides to allow God to set the agenda rather than setting it himself. In expositional preaching, the value of the whole Bible drives the week-to-week preaching agenda. The conviction that all Scripture is profitable for teaching, rebuking, correcting, and training in righteousness leads the pastor to let the books of the Bible to set his agenda. And over time he aims to bring more of the riches of every part of God’s Word to bear on his people’s lives. – Bobby Jamieson, from Hearing God’s Word: Expositional Preaching Healthy Church Study Guide
