Preaching as truthtelling

As scarce as truth is, the supply has always been in excess of the demand. - Josh Billings

Of all the terms for Jesus, one of the most comforting is knowing that Jesus is the Truth. For me, proclaiming the truth in a world of lies and half-truths is one of the most satisfying elements of preaching. Maybe that's why Brad Huston's recent post on truth really struck a chord:
Just as Christ proclaimed that he is the ultimate end of the law given to Moses, the Gospel is the ultimate end of truth. And if this truth is the testimony of Christ, and if we are in Christ as receivers of his truth, then we have the mind of Christ
In preaching we proclaim the very mind and essence of Christ--the Truth. What a burden, and what a joy.
