If you wanna know what we’re after in preaching as a church, John Piper provides a really helpful explanation. I love this:

If you’re used to a twenty-minute, immediately practical, relaxed talk, you won’t find that from what I’ve just described.

  • I preach twice that long;
  • I do not aim to be immediately practical but eternally helpful;
  • and I am not relaxed.

I am standing vigilantly on the precipice of eternity speaking to people who this week could go over the edge whether they are ready to or not. I will be called to account for what I said there.

You can read the rest here – or watch it below. Scott Thomas also posted about characteristics of good preaching here.
