Charles Haddon Spurgeon said, “I would rather speak five words out of this book than 50,000 words of the philosophers. If we want revivals, we must revive our reverence for the Word of God. If we want conversions, we must put more of God’s Word into our sermons.”

Many cry out for revival, but too often look for man-made solutions, human philosophical wisdom, and simple pragmatism to accomplish what only God can do. What goes neglected, even amoung those considered ‘spiritual’ is the presence, power, and preaching of the Word of God.

Pastor Steve Lawson writes a compelling article on “How Biblical Preaching Brings True Revival.” He lays out a biblical and historical case for the necessity of expositional preaching.

Gimmicks and entertaining strategies may draw attention for a while, but it is the preaching of the Word of God that has been consistently used of God to change lives throughout history.  If the millions of unsaved people of greater Atlanta and Georgia are going to come to saving faith in Jesus Christ, it will require the Spirit of God using the people of God to preach the word of God.

I agree with Pastor Lawson: “May a new generation of strong men step forward and speak up, and may they do so loud and clear. As the pulpit goes, so goes the church.”

Chris Jordan has been the pastor of Christ Church Metro Atlanta since 2007, which recently merged with North Peachtree Baptist Church to form Crossroads Church of Dunwoody.
