The Expository Files


A Word About Expository Files

 Expository Files is a unique electronic publishing effort, designed to further the exposition of Scripture.

We are not in the business of providing sermons for preachers, though we understand our content may help preachers prepare for sermons. Articles and sermons are not the same, though both should convey Biblical content, both should challenge readers/hearers to make commitments and both can find audience miles from their original propagation. Sermons constitute a better
opportunity for application, challenge, exhortation and invitation.  Expository Files articles are more about the exposition of text of Scripture for learning and good use by the readers. Through the server, we are also building a huge archive of Bible studies for easy access and future use.

If you hear a preacher say he got a sermon from Expository Files, that may not be so good. Jon and I are both preachers, and we spend a great deal of time in study, reading, organizing and polishing sermons for delivery. Getting sermons from the Internet is something we discourage. You may learn something from Expository Files; you may find good sermon outlines on the
Internet, but don't let digital resources become a substitute for study.

"Take heed to yourself and to the doctrine. Continue in them, for in doing this you will save both yourself and those who hear you," (1 Tim. 4:16).
