From and Before God

A Practical Introduction to Expository Preaching

Imagine this scene. You are standing in the pulpit of your church preaching on a Sunday morning. Without your knowledge, the Lord Jesus himself is sitting in the last row, listening attentively to what you’re saying. How would this reality impact your preaching?

The truth is that this is no mere illustration: the Lord is present in His churches every Sunday, listening to the preaching of His Word.

The apostle Paul wrote in 2 Corinthians 2:17 that ministers are to preach “as from God and before God.” Those who preach God’s Word are commissioned by God to preach, and they do their preaching before God, for an audience of one.

This, according to Sugel Michelén, is the biblical foundation for expository preaching—preaching that draws out what is in the Word of God. In this work, Michelén, regarded as one of the best preachers in the Spanish-speaking church, makes a biblical case for expository preaching and models for readers how to prepare and preach as from and before God.
