Who do we preach to?

Adrian Warnock today responds to a recent post at Blogotional on whether congregational preaching should focus primarily on winning the lost or building up the saints. I like Adrian's conclusion:

My growing conviction is that every sermon I preach needs to be targetted at both groups. I want a child who knows nothing about God to be able to understand AND a theology professor to benefit in some way from the same sermon. Is it any wonder why preaching is such a fearsome task.

How true. The good news is that the Word of God has the power to do both.
