Preaching Christ

“There is a difference between preaching Christ and preaching about Christ.  Preaching Christ is presenting him so clearly and directly that the people experience the sermon this way: ‘It was before your eyes that Jesus Christ was publicly portrayed as crucified’ (Galatians 3:1).  Preaching about Christ is presenting ideas related to him.  It’s a good thing to do.  But preaching Christ is more profound, more daring and more helpful.”
