A Word for Preachers...Zack Eswine on Christ-Centered Preaching

"According to Paul, the first essential for preaching is Chrsit. Regardless of the time and place in history that one preaches, biblical preaching is meant to be Christ-centered. Christ forms the content of our preaching (him we proclaim). Christ forms the purpose of our preaching (that we may present everyone mature in Christ). Christ is the power for our preaching (with all his energy that he powerfully works within me). To place preaching in the context of Jesus is to remember the redemptive movement of God for our sermons."
