[A thought for the day]
Just a moment
Is there a pattern for faithful exposition of the Word of God?
Yes there is. It is given to us in the Book of Nehemiah
And Ezra opened the book in the sight of all the people, for he was standing above all the people; and when he opened it, all the people stood up. 6 And Ezra blessed the LORD, the great God. Then all the people answered, "Amen, Amen!" while lifting up their hands. And they bowed their heads and worshiped the LORD with their faces to the ground. 7 Also Jeshua, Bani, Sherebiah, Jamin, Akkub, Shabbethai, Hodijah, Maaseiah, Kelita, Azariah, Jozabad, Hanan, Pelaiah, and the Levites, helped the people to understand the Law; and the people stood in their place. 8 So they read distinctly from the book, in the Law of God; and they gave the sense, and helped them to understand the reading. Nehemiah 8:5-8
Here is a summary of the kind of ministry of the Word that pleases God.:
1) Reading from Scripture, which resulted in submission and worship of the people v. 5
2) Teaching to help understanding, v.7
3) Clarity in proclamation, v. 8
4) Interpretation, v. 8
5) Application, v. 8
