  • Charles Spurgeon once told of a young preacher asking for feedback from a sermon, and who asked what an older pastor found wrong with his sermon. This was the old preacher's response:

    "There was no Christ in it."

    The young man defended himself, objecting, “Well, Christ was not in the text. We are not to be preaching Christ always; we must preach what is in the text.”

    In response, the older pastor drew this analogy:

    “Don’t you know, young man, that from every town, and every village, and every little hamlet in England, wherever it may be, there is a road to London? Just so from every text in Scripture there is a road to the metropolis of the Scriptures, that is Christ.

    Your business is to ask of a text, ‘Now what is the road to Christ?’ and then preach a sermon, running along the road towards the great metropolis - Christ.

    I have never yet found a text that had not got a road to Christ in it.

    I will go over hedge and ditch to get at my Master, for the sermon cannot do any good unless there be a savor of Christ in it.”
