Quote of the Day #100 - Paul Washer

A quote from Paul Washer:
You can speak of Christ with a view to lesser glory— and you can fail miserably. But you can never speak too much of Christ.

He will exhaust you! He will absolutely exhaust you!

And this is the pain of preaching for you young men. Preaching is not about simply the communication of morality. Preaching is not a passion because you want people to do well. Preaching is a task of a painter without a brush! It is absolutely impossible! Your whole task in life is to do something that you know from the outset you will miserably fail in doing— and that is to paint a picture of Jesus Christ.
~Paul Washer (Where Does Passion Come From?)
