A Biblical Work


For the message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God.
1 Corinthians 1:18

“Over the past half century,” observed a pastor, “evangelicals have devoted vast quantities of energy and resources to the invention of novel church-growth strategies that tend to discount biblical preaching…. Many have borrowed their management philosophies from the corporate world; … their fashion cues from the entertainment industry; … imitated the communications styles of secular mass media; and … employed various bells and whistles from modern technology designed mainly to amaze and impress rather than to teach and edify.”

That’s a fair critique of some of today’s ministries. While we should use every legitimate tool at our disposal, we must pursue God’s work in God’s way. We can’t win the victory in worldly dress any more than David could confront Goliath in Saul’s armor.

God’s way is: Prayer; preaching of the Word of God, rightly divided; and the power of the Holy Spirit filling the one who is committed to Christ. That’s the only way to build a biblical work.

Preaching should take a Trinitarian form…. In so doing, it bears witness to the God who speaks, the Son who saves, and the Spirit who illuminates.
Albert Mohler

Well, that's a loaded question.... go read the Bible.. if that's your thing
