“After the preacher knows the text for the message, the next step and obligation is to make sure that the truth of God revealed in the text is in fact the basis for and master of the sermon that is to be preached. At the heart of expository preaching is a commitment to expose and proclaim the truth that is there in the text of God’s Word. A primary and fundamental concern in sermon preparation is to discern accurately the truth that is really in the text.” (Stephen & David Olford, Anointed Expository Preaching)
