Memorable Scripture: Just preach Jesus.

1 Corinthians 2:1-2
And I, brethren, when I came to you, did not come with excellence of speech or of wisdom declaring to you the testimony of God. For I determined not to know anything among you except Jesus Christ and Him crucified.

I love this verse. It’s one I try to keep in mind.
It reminds me of the autobiography of Charles Spurgeon.
He said, “It seems to me that many of our churches need a class of ministers who will not aim at lofty scholarship, but at the winning of souls; men of the people, feeling, sympathizing, fraternizing with the masses of working-men; men who can speak the common language, the plan blunt Saxon of the crowd.”
Paul and Spurgeon were right.
Don’t use highfalutin words or talk about useless, mundane things.
Politics won’t save.
Feel good messages won’t save.
Socializing won’t save.
Just talk about Jesus Christ and Him crucified.
That’s what saves.
