2 Timothy 4:2 – THE TYPE OF PREACHING GOD LIKES 

Everybody has an opinion of what makes a sermon good or bad.

When someone says “That was a great message.”, or that was a terrible message, he is usually giving a subjective opinion. 

God tells us in this verse what kind of preaching He likes.  This is the type of sermon a preacher should strive to preach. This is the type of sermon for which God’s people should be thankful when they hear it. 

God likes the preaching when:

THE WORD OF GOD IS PROCLAIMED – “Preach the word.” 

THE MESSENGER IS PREPARED – “Be instant in season, out of season.” 

THE AUDIENCE IS PROVOKED – “Reprove, rebuke, exhort.” 

THE WORD IS PRESENTED PATIENTLY AND CLEARLY.  – “With all longsuffering and doctrine.”
