The Benefits Of Expository Preaching

From Series: The Pastor's Study, Volume 3

2 Corinthians 2:12-17  (ID: 2244)

What makes Bible-centered preaching so timeless and effective? Alistair Begg helps us see the many benefits of expository preaching, reminding us of the sufficiency, authority, and supremacy of God’s written Word. Expository preaching demands consistent consideration of the whole Bible. Pastors, therefore, must be learning continually as they help their congregations study the Bible in an orderly way. God is glorified when His words—not man’s ideas—are given priority.


Triumph in Christ

12When I came to Troas to preach the gospel of Christ, even though a door was opened for me in the Lord, 13my spirit was not at rest because I did not find my brother Titus there. So I took leave of them and went on to Macedonia.

14But thanks be to God, who in Christ always leads us in triumphal procession, and through us spreads the fragrance of the knowledge of him everywhere. 15For we are the aroma of Christ to God among those who are being saved and among those who are perishing, 16to one a fragrance from death to death, to the other a fragrance from life to life. Who is sufficient for these things? 17For we are not, like so many, peddlers of God's word, but as men of sincerity, as commissioned by God, in the sight of God we speak in Christ.
