In a recent interview with Ministry, Haddon Robinson said: “The hardest part of the preaching process is learning how to take a passage from the Bible and make it apply to the 21st century. It never gets easy because you are dealing with two entities: a text written 2,000 years ago and people today.

Strong biblical sermons must be bifocal. They need to reflect the big idea of the text and also reflect the concerns, needs and questions of the listeners today. Through relevant biblical preaching, people can come to understand and experience what God has to say to them today, but working that process is challenging.”
