#1. Does the preacher ground everything he says in the Bible?

#2. Does the preacher freely emphasize that because of sin, a right relationship with God can only be established by God’s grace alone?

#3. Does the preacher stress that salvation is not achieved by what we can do, rather salvation is received by faith in what Christ has already done?

#4. Does the preacher underline that Christ is the exclusive mediator between God and man?

#5. Does the preacher exalt God above all?

Ponder these… and pray for your preacher today.
