If You Had One Sermon To Preach

What would it be?
I was reminded this week of Paul’s statement in 1 Corinthians 2:1-2 where he wrote, “1 When I came to you, brothers, I did not come with eloquence or superior wisdom as I proclaimed to you the testimony about God. 2 For I resolved to know nothing while I was with you except Jesus Christ and him crucified”
I can’t help but think his encounter with the risen Lord in Acts 9 was part of the motivation for this statement. When you have come face-to-face with the Lord and walked away blind for a few days until one of the guys you were persecuting takes you in and takes care of you, you have the makings of a very memorable day!
Some times we weave Christ into our sermons but how often do we just preach about Jesus Christ? So that is my goal this Sunday. I am going to talk about who Jesus is and what he did and what that means for us. If that won’t preach, I don’t know what will!
