Preachers these days are expected to major in Christian moral renovation. They are expected to provide a practical to do list rather than announce, “It is finished.” To focus on how I am doing more than on what Christ has done is Christian narcissism (an oxymoron if I ever heard one), the poison of self-absorption which undermines the power of the gospel in our lives. – Jesus + Nothing = Everything, Tullian Tchividjian
