“Preachers need more than just a commonsense hermeneutic when they read the Bible for sermon preparation. They aren’t reading the Bible for themselves or to teach a Bible study. A sermon is not thoughts about the Bible. Preachers make war on the human heart. Preaching hermeneutics prepare a pastor to decay sin, to look into the eyes in the pews and say with Nathan the prophet: “Thou art the Man!””
Oh man this is a great quote on preaching.
