Geoffrey Thomas – Preaching on Preaching

April 7, 2009

Dr Geoffrey Thomas, a great preacher himself, has a series all about preaching that is well worth looking at. I think it has now been adapted into a book.

I’ve  enjoyed reading these:

Preaching: 1 Introduction
Preaching: 2 The Man
Preaching: 3 The Message
Preaching: 4 The Method
Preaching: 5 The Centrality

Mr Thomas’ fourth talk on “the method” is particularly helpful. He deliniates a sevenfold beginners methodology of the true work of ministry:

1) The work of the ministry will only be achieved by unfeigned belief in truthfulness of the Bible.

2) The work of the ministry will only be achieved by enduring tough times.

3) The work of the ministry will only be achieved by toil.

4) The work of the ministry will only be achieved by dependence upon the Holy Spirit.

5) The work of the ministry can only be achieved in the defense of the gospel.

6) The work of the ministry will only be achieved by discriminatory preaching.

7) The work of the ministry will only be achieved by applicatory preaching.
