Ray Ortland has me (and you) pegged. He’s describing me when he says:
Every Sunday I am a weak man preaching to weak people. Admonition has its place. But what weak people need, more than admonition, is help.
He also reminds me what I need and and the people I preach to need saying that:
Weak sinners, continually reassured by grace, will accomplish more for Christ than they would if continually confronted by demand.
It’s a short piece, read it here.
