A Preacher’s Decalogue

What can a master preacher tell us about the do’s and don’ts, the must’s and musn’ts of pulpit ministry?  Sinclair Ferguson gives us a look in this extremely helpful essay:

1. Know your Bible better
2. Be a man of prayer
3. Don’t lose sight of Christ
4. Be deeply Trinitarian
5. Use your imagination
6. Speak much of sin and grace
7. Use the “Plain Style”
8. Find your own voice
9. Lean how to transition
10. Love your people

I commend the full article to all that you might see how Ferguson fleshes out each of these very important points and exhorts us to biblical preaching that truly changes lives.
