Preaching as a Means of Soul Care

Sometimes we separate preaching and counseling as two distinct parts of pastoral ministry.  But good, gospel-centered preaching is a means of soul care to believers as Lloyd Jones makes clear in this quote below:

The preaching of the Gospel from the pulpit, applied by the Holy Spirit to individuals who are listening, has been the means of dealing with personal problems of which I as the preacher knew nothing... D. Martyn Lloyd-Jones

My pastor, Tony Rose, models this well.  You can listen to his radio broadcast on 94.7 FM/900 AM at 6:00 PM. or go here for past broadcasts.
