A Word for Preachers...Chapell on the Motivating Power of the Cross

"The old preaching imperative, 'make much of the blood,' reflects great wisdom about human motivation. The cross stimulates love for God, the resurrection zeal for his purposes, and the second coming perseverance in his cause. All are necessary, but God's mercy toward the undeserving -- as it unfolds through Scripture and culminates in the cross -- is still the message that programs the heart to receive and employ all other truths of the gospel."
