Thank you for this insightful article. How often have parents said to their children, “The world does NOT revolve around you!”? As a pastor, I’ve not thought about this in connection with preaching a sermon. Thank you for reminding me of what Jesus said to His Disciples, “And I, if I be lifted up from the earth, will draw all men unto me.”
This article is very spot-on! There is a tendency to close our eyes to the promise, and just listen out to the demands because we are by nature do-it-yourselfers. But the whole point is Jesus, on every page of scripture.
I've always enjoyed Rutledge's sermons and online posts.

I have recently discovered that when people tell me that a sermon is "very practical" it almost always means it has been interpreted to be about them and what they can do. It has become man centred.
This article is spot on and has caused me to reflect about the purpose of a message. It reminds me of Mary and Martha. Martha was busy doing stuff while Mary just worshiped. Sometimes the point of a passage is just to create awe in us.
