Summary: Make Jesus the centre of our preaching
I was inspired to write this message after listening to a powerful man OF GOD preach about making JESUS the centrality of our preaching.
I googled this about sunflowers and paraphrased it in my words.
SOUTH AFRICA IS THE TENTH LARGEST PRODUCER OF SUNFLOWER SEED IN THE WORLD IT IS GROWN IN THE FREE STATE WHERE I WORK Once. A Farmer TOOK ME ONE DAY AND SHOWED ME THE MOST AMAZING SIGHT I EVER SAW MOVEMENTS OF SUNFLOWERS FOLLOWING THE SUN
They literally follow the sun.Watching one sunflower follow the sun is amazing. But Watching hundreds in absolute unison follow the sun is incredible. Something I found out recently, is that Sunflowers continue tracking the suns direction long after the sun is set. They ensure that they are always oriented in the direction of the sun. Their unity is totally dependant on one thing. Their relationship to the sun.
1: Sunflowers produce oil after following the sun their entire lifetime.
2:What will Christians produce after following Gods son the anointing
I heard a story of a preacher that was struggling to find something to preach about on Sunday,and he was vocalizing it in despair,when suddenly he heard a LOUD voice from the kitchen, PREACH JESUS PREACH JESUS.HE SAID HE WAS UPSET WHEN HE FIRST HEARD HIS WIFE SAY PREACH JESUS,BUT OVER THE YEARS HE SAID THAT WAS THE BEST ADVICE SOMEBODY COULD HAVE GIVEN HIM.IT MAY SURPRISE TO KNOW THAT JESUS IS HARDLY PREACH IN OUR CHURCHES today WEVE BECOME MORE SEEKER FRIENDLY.
25: Whereof I am made a minister, according to the dispensation of God which is given to me for you, to fulfil the word of God;
26 Even the mystery which hath been hid from ages and from generations, but now is made manifest to his saints:
27 To whom God would make known what is the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles; which is Christ in you, the hope of glory:
28 1: A: Whom we preach,(plural)
A: HIM WE PREACH (AMP)
2: B: warning every man, and teaching every man in all wisdom;
4: C: that we may present every man perfect in Christ Jesus:
29 D: Whereunto I also labour, striving according to his working, which worketh in me mightily.
1: A: HIM WE PREACH (AMP)
IF JESUS CHRIST IS NOT THE CENTRAL FIGURE OF OUR PREACHING ITS Not BIBLE BASED PREACHING. WE MUST PREACH HIM. JESUS CHRIST!Let's look at Pauls preaching of the gospel of Jesus and what he preached.
18: And immediately there fell from his eyes as it had been scales: and he received sight forthwith, and arose, and was baptized.
19 And when he had received meat, he was strengthened. Then was Saul certain days with the disciples which were at Damascus.
20 And straightway he preached Christ in the synagogues, that he is the Son of God.
So it is very clear from scripture that straight-away Paul preached JESUS.
