Fellow preacher, if you aren’t preaching the Gospel then what message of hope could you possibly bring to your congregation? The greatest preachers in history have had the blood-stained cross of Christ and the empty tomb of our risen Savior as central to their sermons. From Paul to Luther to Wesley to Moody to Graham to Swindoll, the best of the best preach the Gospel relentlessly.

Preachers, preach the Gospel. Like Charles Spurgeon, take your text and make a beeline for the cross.
