“He commanded us to preach to the people and to testify that he is the one whom God appointed as judge of the living and the dead.”
Preachers must preach.
They must preach Jesus.
Their lives must match their preaching, they must witness of Jesus also.
They must witness that Jesus is the special one, the anointed one, appointed as the final judge.
When was the last sermon you heard which was about Jesus? It is a crazy question perhaps, but when?
Preachers preach about preaching,, they preach about anything but the nature of Jesus.
The pulpit is removed to the side or altogether. Space is created for the worship team or the dance team. More time is given to worshipping, the singing of songs, or to technology. The Bible is squeezed to the bear minimum. Preaching time slots are introduced and that is a reduced schedule.
We need preaching back in our churches. Where our Pastors have spent considerable time beforehand preparing what they are going to say. It is a command.
