On the Sufficiency (and Insufficiency) of Scripture

I have taken a few different preaching courses, usually because I was training at either a school or a church and they didn’t take credit from the ones I already had. Through these courses, I’ve learned about a few different approaches to writing sermons, but two common things have shown up in all of them:

  1. Each focused on the importance of expository preaching and proper understanding of scripture, and
  2. Every one of them urged us to include some form of practical application.
