Too Little Exposition

One of the alarming trends in modern pulpits is how there’s too little exposition of the Word of God. Preachers open their sermons with stories purportedly to catch the attention of the listeners. They read their texts some fifteen minutes later and proceed with sermons that have nothing to do with the quoted texts. There’s little wrestling with the word of God. The tension is in the human response to the text, not the Bible answering the Bible. And we wonder why Christians have so little respect and love for the written Word of God.
