More on the purpose of preaching

Scot McKnight has done a series of blog posts on pastoral life, based on Col. 1:24-29. In Part 2, Scot gets it right in discussing the purpose of preaching:
let me emphasize that the purpose of preaching is not to relay information only nor is it to be received well by the congregation, but to bring both into a relationship in such a way that the Word of God implicates the congregation (and the preacher/teacher) into its own story.
Amen. I also appreciate Part 4, which stresses the strenous labor of gospel ministry.
