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.”
