Samuel Wishard on Christ-centered homiletics

Charles Barnes notes this:

Samuel Wishard organized the First Presbyterian Church in Idaho Falls in 1891, and several other churches in Southeast Idaho in the 1890’s. Here is his advice on sermon preparation and preaching:

  • Preach the Lord Jesus Christ
  • Preach by the authority of Christ
  • Preach in Christ’s stead
  • Preach with the help of Christ
  • Preach with hope in Christ
  • Preach with the love of Christ
  • Preach to please Christ
  • Preach to glorify Christ
  • Preach in imitation of Christ
  • Preach expecting to give account to Christ.
