Preaching ChristPosted by: Curt Arend on 18 Jun 2011 11:41 am
I trust you have known something of the abundance of God’s Mercies and unspeakable joy in Christ in recent weeks. GBC-SD is committed to preaching Christ and ensuring that everything we do as a church and the people of God, be Christ centered. Consider this excellent quote by Andrew Fuller. For those who don’t know, he was one of those who supported William Carry, who is referred to as “The father of modern Missions.” The Baptist Missionary Society was formed by these men along with Sutcliff and Ryland who were other Reformed Baptist Ministers in England during the late 1790’s.
Think and meditate on the truth of what Fuller says, who though he be dead, yet speaks today.
“If you preach Christ, you need not fear for want of matter. His person and work are rich in fulness. Every Divine attribute is seen in him. All the types prefigure him. The prophecies point to him. Every truth bears relation to him. The law itself must be so explained and enforced as to lead to him. . . . The preaching of Christ will answer every end of preaching. This is the doctrine which God owns to conversion, to the leading of awakened sinners to peace, and to the comfort of true Christians. If the doctrine of the cross be no comfort to us, it is a sign we have no right to comfort. This doctrine is calculated to quicken the indolent, to draw forth every Christian grace, and to recover the backslider. This is the universal remedy for all the moral diseases of all mankind. – Andrew Fuller
