The Congregation’s Responsibility in Preaching

“Second, our congregations must be aware of this priority and honor it. The congregation needs to understand that preaching is not merely the preacher’s responsibility. It is the congregation’s responsibility to see that it is fed, so it is the congregation’s responsibility to call a preacher who will preach the Word. Then it is the congregation’s responsibility to hold him accountable for that preaching and to measure his effectiveness and his faithfulness to, of all things, the pulpit ministry”

from Albert Mohler, Jr. in John MacArthur, R. Albert Mohler Jr., et al., Feed My Sheep: A Passionate Plea for Preaching (Lake Mary, FL: Reformation Trust, 2008), p. 16.
