John Murray was a theologian who taught at Princeton Theological Seminary and then helped to found Westminster Theological Seminary along with J. Gresham Machen and others.
I saw some comments attributed to John Murray regarding the difference between preaching and lecturing here.
The comments are simple and helpful, so I thought I would pass them on. I feel like I have heard this somewhere else before (perhaps in one of my preaching classes?), but I thought I could not hurt repeating.
So, here is what Murray says distinguishes the two:
A sermon must be Personal.
It must be Passionate.
And it must involve a Plea.
Just someone else's thoughts,
