25 Truths About Preachers From 2 Timothy

Here is a great list from Colin Adams:

The Bible is the best place to learn about preaching. Other books on preaching can be good, of course. But whatever Scripture says on preaching is definitive. Its like drinking from the spring itself.

1. The herald proclaims a message that holds out the promise of life (2 Tim 1:1).

2. The preacher’s gift comes from God (2 Tim 1:6).

3. The gift of a herald must be fanned into flame (2 Tim 1:6): that is, stirred up by constant use.

4. The preaching gift must be exercised with love, power and self-discipline (2 Tim 1:7).

5. A gospel minister must not be ashamed to testify about the Lord (2 Tim 1:8).

6. The gospel must not simply be preached, but suffered for if necessary (2 Tim 1:9).

7. What they proclaim is a gospel of salvation, holiness, grace and life (2 Tim 1:9-10).

8. The gospel can be, and must be, both heralded and taught (2 Tim 1:11).

9. There is a pattern of sound teaching against which every sermon can be measured (2 Tim 1:13).

10. We are not just to preach the truth; we are to preach ‘with faith and love’ (2 Tim 1:13).

11. The gospel doesn’t just need to be preached, it needs to be guarded (2 Tim 1:14).

12. The preacher will inevitably endure some suffering, but God’s Word is not chained (2 Tim 2:9).

13. The preacher should correctly handle the word like an unashamed workman (2 Tim 2:15).

14. The life of the preacher matters; they must be fleeing sin and pursuing righteousness (2:22).

15. The herald must continue with the Holy Scriptures (2 Tim 3:14), knowing the dependable character of the Scriptures (God breathed – 3:16).

16. The servant of the Word must learn to wield this sword in different ways: Scripture can be used for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness (2 Tim 3:16).

17. They are charged to preach the Word in the very presence of God and Christ (2 Tim 4:1).

18. The second appearing of Christ should always be an event in the herald’s view (2 Tim 4:1).

19. The preacher is called to preach the Word – and nothing else (2 Tim 4:2).

20. Proclamation is to continue regardless of whether the climate is favorable (2 Tim 4:2).

21. A preaching ministry requires not only passion but patience (2 Tim 4:2).

22. The herald of the gospel should expect ‘competition’ in the form of other communicators conveying contrary messages (2 Tim 4:3).

23. There is a great reward in store for the preacher; but not mainly for their faithful preaching: they will be rewarded if they have longed for the appearing of Christ (2 Tim 4:8).

24. Preachers need friends (2 Tim 4:9, 4:11).

25. We never stand alone when testifying to Christ; the Lord stands by the preacher’s side and gives them strength (2 Tim 4:17)
