John A. Broadus lived from 1827-1895. Some consider him the father of American expository preaching. Noteworthy is the fact that he was personal friends with Stonewall Jackson and Robert E. Lee and ministered to the Southern Troops in the War Between the States. Let’s listen in to one of his class sermons entitled, “Delight in the Will of God.”
I delight to do thy will, O my God! (Psalm 40:8)
This psalm tells of one who has suffered, been graciously relieved, and now responds in grateful praise and grateful obedience. This is not shown by mere externals of worship, but by delighting to do God’s will, by having his law in the heart, by proclaiming his glorious character and gracious dealings (verses 1-10).
