What if?

Keith Brenton offers a challenge to preachers:
What if each one of us challenged our ministers and teachers to preach nothing but Christ and Him crucified for an entire year?

What might happen if our churches heard nothing but the pure, unadulterated gospel of Jesus the Savior for twelve months straight?

How many might come into a relationship - either for the first time, or an even closer one - with the God of grace through His only begotten Son and inspired by His Holy Spirit if their time of worship and learning revolved around the One whom the law and prophets anticipate, the gospels celebrate, the epistles inaugurate, and holy revelation consummates?
Well?

Of course, it remains to be seen how well I can live up to the challenge on my blog ... it's daunting!

So far, so good ... volunteered to lead a devotional at my church on Super Bowl night for those who would still want to gather. Themed it "Who is this Jesus?"

Still hanging tough on my blog. Church directories, dwindling membership, any other issues-of-the-moment notwithstanding.

Jesus or nuthin'.
