Sermons and changed lives

BP News reports on a presentation by Hershael York at a recent preaching conference. York pointed out that the purpose of expository preaching is changed lives:
"The text always shows us that there is something in us that is deficient that is in need of the grace of God to be applied," he said. "... We have to repent. We have to allow the grace of God to be applied to our lives in such a way that we grow in Christ's likeness."
I like the focus of the article--keeping the gospel at the center of our presentation. It also offers helpful advice on how to do that.

Good article - Thanks for the link, Milton. Chapell also covers this in his discussion of the Fallen Condition Focus of a passage in Christ-Centered Preaching.
