“A lion has roared! Who will not fear? The Lord God has spoken! Who can but prophesy?” Amos 3:8
On Saturday 24 November, we invited preachers to attend a practical workshop on Biblical Exposition. This was the second workshop on Biblical Preaching that we have held at our Mission Base in Cape Town. The workshop was largely based on the Biblical Preaching Handbook which we published this year.
The first session dealt with Reformation Preaching. We observed that throughout History, God has kept for Himself men who faithfully proclaimed His Word, even in the face of death. Today, we need more men who will boldly proclaim God’s Word in this sin-soaked world. According to Operation World (2010), 75% of the South African population claimed to be Christian, and 21% of the population claimed to be Evangelical. In 2015, the general household survey of South Africa claimed that 86% of South Africans were affiliated with Christianity; however, only 52% of those Christians were involved in church on a weekly basis.
