To What End Do You Preach?

My heart was stirred by this quote from Samuel Davies, cited by Iain Murray in Revival and Revivalism:

“To preach repentance towards God, and faith towards our Lord Jesus Christ – to alarm secure impenitents; to reform the profligate; to undeceive the hypocrite; to raise up the hands that hang down…These are the ends I pursue and if ever I divert from these to ceremonial trifles, let my tongue cleave to the roof of my mouth. (p. 26)”
