Wayland: preaching

Tuesday, October 29, 2013
    Commemoration of James Hannington, Bishop of Eastern Equatorial Africa, Martyr in Uganda, 1885
    It was he who gave some to be apostles, some to be prophets, some to be evangelists, and some to be pastors and teachers, to prepare God’s people for works of service, so that the body of Christ may be built up until we all reach unity in the faith and in the knowledge of the Son of God and become mature, attaining to the whole measure of the fullness of Christ.
    —Ephesians 4:11-13 (NIV)
    As the great test of medical practice is that it heals the patient, so the great test of preaching is that it converts and builds up the hearers.
    ... Herman L. Wayland (1830-1898) (see the book)
    See also Eph. 4:11-12; John 2:23; 8:30; 21:17; Acts 2:40-41; 4:4; 5:14; 8:12; 11:28; 13:48; 14:1; 20:28,32; 1 Cor. 1:17-18; 1 Thess. 2:4
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, strengthen the preaching of _____, so that many more may know You.
