People crave the greatness of God. Who will feed their souls? Could they say, "I have looked upon you in the sanctuary, beholding your power and glory?" As we explore the wasteland of a secular society, do we not ask, "Who but Christian preachers will say to the people, 'Behold your God!'?" Who could paint the landscape of God's grandeur for them? Who is going to use tales of wonder to remind them that God has triumphed over every foe? Who will cry out above every crisis, "Your God reigns!"?

John Piper makes a passioned plea for preachers to emphasize the supremacy of God as the bracing air of their sermons. He wants to see a new generation of preachers, and a revived group of seasoned brothers, set aflame with the grandeur of God, his glory as the goal of preaching, his cross as the ground of preaching, his Spirit as the power of preaching.
