What makes for good preaching? What qualities and characteristics set one sermon apart from countless others? Paul urges his friends to pray for two things - boldness and clarity. One who declares the word of God speaks not in his own authority, but with God's authority. This enables him to be bold in what he says. Equally important is the need for clarity - to make things plain, understandable and intelligible to the hearer. For more thoughts on these two threads, let me invite you to look at an article that I wrote on this subject. Boldness and Clarity in Preaching It is my plan to upload more articles that I've written in the past and to build something of an archive of articles for the edification of anyone who cares to explore them.
