The Ten Commandments of Preaching

The most recent edition of the theological journal Themelios has an article by one of my favorite pastors, Sinclair Ferguson. In it he offers Ten Commandments for preachers. Ferguson elaborates on each of them, and if you're a preacher, you would do well to click here and take a couple minutes to see what he has to say. But if you only have a second, here is the list of the Commandments by themselves:
  1. Know your Bible better.
  2. Be a man of prayer.
  3. Do not 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. Learn how to transition.
  10. Love your people.
