Church: part four; Proclamation

Proclamation is the presentation of the Word of God.  Now this message may be the reading of the Word,  or it may be preaching, or some other form of communicating God’s message to His people.  It is important that people have the opportunity to hear from God in church.

This message comes through a human messenger.  This can influence the quality of the message.  A friend of mine once told me that listening to sermons is like eating chicken,  you eat the meat and spit out the bones.  This requires a certain amount of spiritual training and discernment that should grow with time.  The Holy Spirit will guide us into truth and will help to apply messages that are given to a group, to our own particular circumstances.
