Main point summary
Preach the word with complete patience and teaching at all times.
God charge us to preach the word whether it would be convenient for us or not. And this preaching is not just teaching, it is the heralding of God’s word the way a town crier does, shouting “hear ye, hear ye!”. Eliciting a response from the hearers and leading them to doxology.
Preaching is not exultation without exposition of the Word. Nor is preaching exposition of the Word without exultation. One error cuts off the head. The other rips out the heart. In both cases the victim dies. No heart. Or, no head. You’re dead. And so is preaching. And not too long after, the church. – John Piper
