Preaching with Bishop Nelson Nzvimbo

For pastors particularly, the pulpit is the most critical place to saturate our churches with the gospel. Every sermon should be grounded in the good news of what Jesus Christ has done for us. 

The motivation to do in the Christian life always flows out of the reality of what Christ has done for us. That’s a relevant message for those who have never heard of Jesus and those who have been his disciples.

Charles Spurgeon once said that in every one of his sermons, he would “plow a trough” back to Jesus. Since all of the Scriptures point to Jesus, this shouldn’t be too much of a trial for us. The point of the Bible is to exalt the name of Jesus.

The point of every sermon is the same. As D. Martyn Lloyd-Jones put it:

The goal of a lecture is that people leave with information;

The goal of a motivational speech is that they leave with action steps;

But the goal of a sermon is that people leave worshipping.

Gospel preaching will always have Christ-exalting worship as its aim. Lets keep the main thing the main thing, Jesus Christ in all out preaching.
