What is “Deeper” Preaching?
I read a great post from Pete Wilson recently about “deeper” preaching and worship. I hear people all the time say things like, “That teaching is not “deep enough” for me,” or “I’m not be fed enough spiritually.” I realize the need for rich spiritual development and sound biblical teaching. Nonetheless, often those making comments such as these mistake scholarly language and theological terms for spiritual depth. In other words, just because a teacher or preacher uses big words or technical explanations, doesn’t mean that their teaching or words and “deeper” or better. On the contrary, some of the most powerful teaching I’ve heard comes like Jesus, through simple stories and concepts that can be understood and put into practice. Simple, as Warren says, doesn’t have to mean shallow.
