Christian preaching is described in Scripture in various ways, and we are to be “witnesses” of the Truth, as it is in Jesus. Important and precious as are these designations of preaching, we feel, that the fullest and most comprehensive expression, as well as the shortest and most profound is — to “preach Christ”. For Christ Himself is the Gospel, the glad tidings of salvation. He Himself is the Word of God, the Message of the Most High to sinful and sorrowful mankind; He is the Truth; in Him Eternal Light, Love, and Life are manifested and given to the children of men. This is the peculiar, the unique excellence of Scripture, of which Christ is the centre, that it brings before our view the Person who is able to satisfy all our longings, to deliver us from all our misery, and be to us the fountain of living water, in time and in eternity. Who can read the Old and New Testament Scriptures, without seeing on every page, that it is the revelation, the “word”, of a Person, full of life and love!
