Passage: 1 Corinthians 2:2

What Is It To Preach Christ?

For I determined not to know any thing among you, save Jesus Christ, and him crucified

(1 CORINTHIANS 2:2)

To preach the cross is to preach Christ’s person and Christ’s work.  It is to preach who Christ is: the eternal Son of God and the Son of David, the GodMan; the One chosen and sent of God; the Prophet, Priest and King of His people; the Bread from heaven; the Way, the Truth, the Life.  To preach Christ is to preach why Christ came: God sent Christ to manifest the righteousness of God in how God is just and the Justifier of all who believe on Christ; He came to fulfill the law for His people, to put away the sin of those the Father gave to Him in eternity, to redeem, reconcile and make His people one with God. Preaching Christ is preaching what Christ accomplished: He finished those works God sent Him to do; Christ glorified the Father, brought in everlasting righteousness for His people; Christ entered in once into the holy place having obtained eternal redemption for His people.  To preach Christ is to preach where Christ is now: when He had by Himself purged our sins He sat down at the right hand of the Majesty on high; His people are risen in Him, seated together with Him. Preaching Christ is preaching what Christ is doing now: as the glorified GodMan He is reigning and ruling with all power over all in heaven and in earth, sending His gospel, calling out His people through the Holy Spirit, filling all in all and He will not lose one!  To preach Christ is to preach what Christ shall do: He shall come again; He must reign till He has put all His enemies under His feet, the last being death; then He shall deliver up the kingdom to God presenting His people holy and righteous and unreproveable in God’s sight.
