Richard Baxter on Preaching

For all my preaching buddies, let Richard Baxter stir and challenge you:

 

“Let the people see that you are in good earnest… You cannot break men’s hearts by jesting with them, or telling them a smooth tale, or patching up a gaudy oration. Men will not cast away their dearest pleasures upon a drowsy request of one that seemeth not to mean as he speaks, or to care much whether his request be granted.”
