The importance of Scripture in preaching

Thanks to Peter Bogert for bringing this article to my attention. In "The Role of Scripture in the Missional Church" Phil Steiger at Every Thought Captive offers good advice for any church:
If we are to be salt and light, if we are to be the kind of witness people recognize as distinct from the outside world, then Scripture must be our focus and our text, no matter our style of pulpit ministry. How else are we, the flock of God, to learn what our God desires of us? If the church does not hold up the standard of Scripture, who will?
True, true. That's the value of expository preaching: we don't simply pick and choose the verses that support our pet doctrines. We allow the Word to have its way with us and our congregations.

Milton - thanks for the positive comment. I also linked to something of yours. Could you email me at - I have a few technical questions I wanted to ask you.
