"Application in preaching helps us answer two important questions based on the exposition of God's Word: (1) So what? and (2) Now what? In other words, how does the Bible speak to me today and what do I do about it?"
Daniel L. Akin, "Applying a Text-Driven Sermon," in Text-Driven Preaching, ed. Daniel L. Akin, David L. Allen, and Ned L. Mathews (Nashville: B & H, 2010), 275.
