Preach Christ Crucified!

quote-of-month2An old man was fishing. He pulled in one trout after another. The other men working farther downstream were not doing so well. One of them stood by watching. Finally he asked him his secret.

‘Well, there are three rules for trout fishing’ said the experienced fisherman. ‘The first is to keep yourself out of sight. The second is to keep yourself farther out of sight.  And the third is to keep yourself completely out of sight.

God does work through persons, but every person needs to keep ‘out of sight.’ We should not get in front of the cross, but behind it. We preach Christ crucified and not ourselves (I Corinthians 2:2; II Corinthians 4:5).”
