I have to use a technical term here, we preach exegetical sermons at Faith Family and that sounds like a big four-dollar word but here’s all it means. It really means that we allow the text to speak for itself. So when I’m preaching then I’m not giving my opinion, I’m not trying to preach what someone thinks about this truth, but we’re going into the word of God, and we are allowing the word of God to tell us what it means, interpreting it by other scripture and then just proclaiming that and applying that. And so that means that most of the time we are walking through a book verse by verse, line by line, however, even on times when I’m preaching on a topic or another of our pastor’s is preaching on a topic for instance love or grace, we are still gonna go to the text and we’re gonna allow the text to speak to us about love or about grace so that we’re not giving again our opinion about love but we’re allowing God to tell us what he has already declared as the truth about love or grace. And so I think that is the most beneficial, especially as we apply it to our lives. Number one because it is God’s word, and it is God’s truth and number two, because I think that that teaches people who are listening that the answer is found in the word of God, not in the mind of man so that they leave the service thinking listen that was in the scripture I can myself go to the scripture and see what God is saying and I can apply it to my life as well. So exegeses, allowing the text to speak for itself whether that be line by line, through a book or whether that be topical is what you’ll find at Faith Family.
