There is “problem preaching” and “life situation preaching” but this kind of preaching tends to make people problem conscious and savors more of psychology than religion, more of self-help than God’s help. We need to forget about ourselves and think more of Jesus and the people for whom Jesus died. Through the preaching of the Word of God, we point men to Jesus.
