Living Word

In the section Living Word we want to provide sermon outlines to help pastors in the preparation for their important and central task of preaching. We try to provide help in the exposition and the application of the text. This week: Genesis 16:13.

Guilty silence

But is not this the cause of our guilty silence? We do not speak for Christ because we do not so love His name that we cannot bear to see Him unacknowledged and unadored. If only our eyes were opened to see His glory, and if only we felt wounded by the shame of His public humiliation among men, we should not be able to remain silent. Rather would we echo the apostles’ words: ‘we cannot but speak of what we have seen and heard’ (Acts 4:20).
