With Words, ‘Nearly’ Won’t Do

July 8, 2008

Words are the tools of the preacher’s work. Yet too easily we expositors can become lazy and imprecise in our word choice. Hear then Jay Adams’ exhortation!

“Choose the exact term; do not settle for those living somewhere in its vicinity. To be in the right neighborhood is not enough; you must get the address and find the very house where your word or phrase lives.”

(Jay Adams, Preaching with Purpose, p 112)
