Preaching formula

"I have a formula: Pain + time + insight = change. Sometimes people go through pain over a period of time, but that doesn't change them. But pain and time plus insight will, and that's where the preacher comes in."

I can certainly agree with the factors of pain, time, and insight being included in the change process, but where do the Holy Spirit, faith, repentance, and the gospel fit into his equation? Perhaps these are included in his concept of "insight". Does the rest of his article address these?

Good question. I do recommend giving the whole article a look, because it covers a whole lot of ground.

OK, I just read the whole article, which excellent as you say. The quote you highlighted comes from a section in which he talks about how the Holy Spirit applies God's Word to an individual's situation (I think that's what he means by "insight"). So, that answers my question. Thanks Milton! Keep 'em comin'.
