Let me explain myself. In a note just above I spoke of the difference between preaching to and for a people. I also said I would take the thought of preaching at people. It goes without saying that treating the pulpit as a cowardâ€™s castle, settling old scores, dealing with issues that should be dealt with personally, 6 feet above and 50 feet beyond criticism, is reprehensible. Nevertheless, our preaching must be personal. I have already spoken of eye contact, and also noted Nathanâ€™s use of â€˜Youâ€™ when addressing David. Personal preaching, you see, directed preaching.
