The Cumulative Impact of Preaching

Trevin Wax reflects wisely and helpfully about the need for pastors to invest in their congregation through sound, consistent, expository preaching.  Such preaching does not exclude, but is more important than, individual pastoral care.

After narrating some personal experience with the emphasis of his post, Trevin exhorts pastors to understand the long-term benefit of preaching.

Here’s an excerpt: “So let’s not pit pastoral presence against sermon preparation. Your preaching influences your presence, and vice versa. May the Lord open our eyes to see the quiet, subtle influence that 1000 sermons have on the people God has entrusted to our care.”
