One of my first seminary sermons

I was recently asked to provide a preaching sample to a church. I found this old sermon among my files. It was prepared for my professor Dr. Kent Hughes, a preaching legend and someone I believe to be one of the best expositors of God’s word alive today. The class was a short Jan term course of the exposition of the book of Philippians. I caught strep throat and highly medicated during the entire class (which was only a week long), but still managed to produce a sermon for him. I got an amazingly kind letter from him a few weeks later complimenting the work, which to this day gives me goosebumps. I am my toughest critic, but I do think I did a good job explaining a relatively tough text, a task which I believe I have been called to. It’s fairly short, there are no jokes, and I am indeed reading my manuscript, but I wish more preachers would just explain God’s Word and leave it at that. Comments welcome, but be kind or be better!
