The Message--Christ--and Fruitage
Let us sound the cry that the time has come to attempt more for God and expect more from Him in the way of fruitage. Along with that we must emphasize the necessity of not preaching the bare bones of the message, but having an unction from on high and preaching Christ in it. A man who preaches the message without Christ, I take it, is not preaching the message.
A man who preaches Christ without the message is not preaching Christ properly. It is Christ's message, described in Revelation 14, "having the everIasting gospei to preach." Let us preach it, and sound the call for everybody to preach it.--From the devotional hour at a recent Council
