Excellent discussion. It is rare, in my experience, for those preaching to actually invite application. Excellent exposition, sometimes wisely chosen illustration, but to bring it into today, into current experience towards discipleship? Rare. Leaves me to wonder whether the preacher is really involved (beyond commentary study) with the Word, and/or whether he is afraid to "bring it home"?

Not bad...although the statement, "to teach that God rejects for disobedience is ungracious", is contrary to the scriptures. Paul states that Jesus will come "in flaming fire, inflicting vengeance on those who do not know God and on those who do not obey the gospel of our Lord Jesus. They will suffer the punishment of eternal destruction, away from the presence of the Lord..." 2 Thess. 1:8-9. I would call that rejection for disobedience.

An excellent, well thought out article that causes me to think more about my preaching. The thought: "Even when we preach grace, people hear law. It's the human reflex" is helpful. More realistic examples would have been helpful when moving to present imperative: "Jesus wore sandals and so should you" is cute and fills ths space, but I think we are usually more subtle and complex: "The Bible commands us to come out from among them and be separate; how can we have that tv in our home allowing all that garbage into our lives?...." Many thanks.
