A Word for Preachers...Stott on the Exposition of God's Word

"Today's preachers are neither prophets nor apostles, for we are not the recipients of any fresh, direct revelation. The Word of the Lord does not come to us as it came to them; rather we have to come to it. Nevertheless, if we faithfully expound the Scriptures, it is his Word which is in our hearts and on our lips, and the Holy Spirit is able to make it a living and powerful word in the hearts of our hearers."

John Stott
