Receiving Christ during Preaching

We listen to people preach messages from the Bible.
Question: But what else is happening?

Answer:
1. The Ascended Christ Jesus is Preaching
2. Christ Jesus is being ‘given’ to us.
3. People are hearing, as the Preacher speaks.
4. Jesus is being received by faith, and making his home within our hearts, minds and Spirit.
5. God’s People are being strengthened by the giving and receiving of Jesus.

This theological teaching paper by Trevor Faggotter may help in understanding these things. Read slowly.
