A Word for Preachers

My friend Marty links to Al Mohler’s interview with recently departed John Stott, and concludes with this:

Remember these words brothers. A Bible, a pen, and a note pad make a man powerful for the duties and challenges of our task. Even if the pen and the note pad are replaced by a screen and a keyboard, there is no substitute for

  • time brooding over a text
  • in submission to the authority of the text
  • under the guidance of the One who inspired the text
  • for the glory of the One to whom the text points.

PS - The interview with Stott is worth reading.
