Preaching as Worship

The aim of preaching, whatever the topic, whatever the text, is this kind of faith—to quicken in the soul a satisfaction with all that God is for us in Jesus, because this satisfaction magnifies God’s all-sufficient glory; and that is worship. Therefore the mission of all preaching is soul-satisfying, God-exalting worship.
—John Piper, “Preaching as Worship: Meditations on Expository Exultation,”
Trinity Journal 16:1 (Spring 1995), 33
