It matters to God how His Word is brought before His people. 

The Apostle Paul, imprisoned in Rome, wrote with passion in his heart, “Timothy, this is the last thing I will ever say to you: Preach the Word.”  That is the heart of expository preaching.  What expository preaching does is explain the divine authorial intent of a passage of Scripture and what its implications are for life.  The primary role of the expositor is to wrestle out of the Bible the true meaning of the text.  Expository preaching starts with a text of Scripture, stays with a text throughout the entire message, and supports it with other texts.  The preacher moves consecutively through a text of Scripture while explaining and applying it.  In order to address the entire person of his listeners  -  the mind, the emotion, and the will -  the expository preacher seeks to:   
  • Illumine and instruct the minds of his listeners with the truth
  • Inspire and ignite their hearts with a love for the truth and a hatred of their sin
  • Encourage and enlist their wills to commit to the truth that has been presented

As an expository preacher, Pastor Bob believes expository preaching is most effective when a book of the Bible is worked through in order to provide continuity of learning.  As he preaches the Word of God,  Bob seeks  to become the bridge that connects the ancient text to the modern listener.

'' When the Bible speaks of love, it measures it primarily not by how much you want to receive but by how much you are willing to give of yourself to someone. How much are you willing to lose for the sake of this person? How much of your freedom are you willing to forsake? How much of your precious time, emotion, and resources are you willing to invest for this person?'' Tim Keller

Christ rules in your heart, not the world
''Jesus spoke the Sermon to those who were already His disciples and thereby also the citizens of God's kingdom and the children of God's family. The high standards He set are appropriate only to such. We do not, indeed could not, achieve this priviledged status by attaining Christ's standards.Rather by attaining His standards, or at least approximating to them, we give evidence of what by God's free grace and gift we already are.'' John Stott, The Message of the Sermon on the Mount
2 Cor 3:18
We are chosen to live a life that is different.
