The Miracle of Preaching

“The miracle of preaching, where does it happen? In what mode does human speaking of human words become speaking words that are the word of God? And the answer I want to commend to all who preach is in expository preaching. It is the only place I know where I can stand and have confidence that what I say is what the living God is saying. It is the only place I know where we mere humans can dare to say or think, ‘Thus says the Lord.’”
