DE KLERK, B.J.. The Holy Spirit and preaching in the service. In Skriflig (Online) [online]. 2010, vol.44, n.2, pp.455-474. ISSN 2305-0853.

The question investigated in this article is how the Holy Spirit is present and active in the action of preaching, and what the result of this is. The Spirit edifies the message and establishes certainty within the preachers that the Spirit will create the right audience for the words of the message. Christ as the centre of preaching is accepted and obeyed by the congregation in its meeting with the Lord. Preaching should transfer the lines in the text via the content of Scripture to the human being of today. The congregation should apply the sermon to their concrete life situation through the exercising of the gift of prophecy. Preaching and prayer stands in a causal relationship to Scripture reading, because Scripture reading elicits preaching and prayer. Preaching as testimony elicits prayer as worship, and the prayer in turn elicits testimony. This causal and interactive relationship is living and powerful through the dynamic work of God the Holy Spirit, who effects communion between God and the congregation in Jesus Christ through these events.

Palavras-chave : gift of prophesy; Holy Spirit; preaching and congregation preaching in worship service; relationship between Scripture reading; preaching and prayer.
