You Need to Listen to This!

Dr. Robert Smith, Professor of Preaching at Beeson Divinity School, preached twice here this week at SEBTS. Both sermons were incredible! The first text he preached was Jeremiah 20:7-18, entitled "Two Inescapable Realities." 2 Corinthians 12:1-10 was his second message entitled, "The Awful Grace of God."  Those titles should be enough to grab your attention. Awful grace? oh yeah. The audio will not do justice to the actual delivery. Nevertheless, you will be blessed by both the content and example of faithful preaching. As an African-American preacher, Smith chooses his words deliberately with much imagery and imagination (I say this because I am persuaded that the African-American pulpit normally excels in utilizing vivid, descript language in an effective manner). He preached extemporaneously (without notes), which was amazing considering the amount of Scripture and various poems and hymns he quoted. Moreover, Smith not only was faithful to the text he preached (immediate context), but also communicated the overarching message of Scripture (the canonical context). Along these lines, in his first sermon, Smith preached Christ from Jeremiah 20 in an exemplary fashion. Download these sermons for your mp3 player or listen online. You won't be disappointed!
