"When I preach...

UncategorizedJared KennedyComment

"When I preach I don't look to the doctors and [government officials] of whom there are about forty in this church.  I have an eye to the many young people, children and servants of whom there are more than two thousand.  I preach to these, addressing myself to their needs.  If other people don't want to listen to this approach then they can always walk out!  An upright, godly and true preacher should direct his preaching to the poor, simple sort of people." -Martin Luther, Table Talk, (London: H. G. Bohn, 1857), 427, quoted in Tim Chester and Steve Timmis, Total Church, (Wheaton, IL: Crossway, 2008).
