Preach The Word
Topic: Preaching Scripture: Acts 14:1–14:7
In the 14th chapter of Acts, we find Paul and Barnabas at Iconium, in yet another synagogue telling others about the person and work of Christ. The text notes that they “spoke in such a way” that people were stirred up, either to affection for Christ or to bitterness and resentment towards God. These initial verses of chapter 14 demonstrate the power of the practice of preaching. While many have considered preaching an outdated, ineffective means of communicating the gospel, Paul held its practice in high regard (2 Timothy 4:1-2), and it is to this day one of the essential means by which the church is grown, fed, and stirred towards deeper adoration of their Savior.
