Preaching the law can be challenging—theologically, ethically, and culturally. No matter how tempting it is for preachers to dismiss a difficult portion of Scripture, our ministry decisions should be made not out of ease or convenience. In line with the apostolic mandate to “preach the Word” (2 Tim. 4:2), let us preach Christ in Deuteronomy for the people of God entrusted to our care.
Ang ipiprisinta natin (in life, in preaching or any ministry) ay hindi kung ano ang gusto natin o ng ibang tao, kundi kung sino si Cristo at ano ang ginawa niya sa krus para sa atin. Hindi kung ano ang gusto, kundi kung ano ang kailangan. Si Cristo lang, walang kumpromiso.
Christ-centered preaching says less about the methods and ways we deliver our sermons but more of how much we treasure Christ in our life and ministry. Christ-centered living leads to Christ-centered preaching.
