Preaching and the Questions of Life

“Sometime sermons raise more questions than they answer. That can happen when you are listening to God. The mysteries of life will not be entirely resolved this side of heaven. But God encourages us to come to him with our questions. Good preachers understand the ancient rubric: ‘faith seeking understanding.’ We trust God, but we’ll do our level best to understand what he is doing. After all, that is the reason he gave us his Word.”
Kenton C. Anderson, Choosing to Preach (Grand Rapids: Zondervan, 2006), 163.
