noses in the text

We often quote the old advice for sermon preparation (from Dick Lucas?): “Knees on the floor, nose in the text” (cf. 2 Tim. 2:7). As we did a taster day for the Utumishi wa Neno preaching course on Saturday we were really trying to say that this is not rocket science. The Bible is essentially simple, sacred, saving and sufficient (2 Tim. 3:14-17). We just need to hear it telling us how to preach. We just need to read it carefully, read it in context, read it and read it and read it again, humbly praying for light, and we will hear the living voice of the living God speaking and telling us wonderful, surprising things about Jesus.

After Fidel, Harrison, James and I had spent the day with a lovely group of brothers and sisters from a new church plant on the outskirts of Nairobi, the most encouraging feedback was: “You have taken us very close to the Word today.” That’s exactly the idea. That’s where the answers are.

For those who were there on Saturday and wanted the notes from the taster, you can download them here.
