The excitement of the coming of the Holy Spirit has come but not the gospel. Now, in this incredibly important passage we see the God-given means to saving sinners, the preaching of the Word of God. What is preaching? And what are the impediments to hearing and believing the Word of God? In this sermon we see again the wisdom of God which confounds the wise of this world who see His ways as weak and foolish. We see the centrality and necessity of preaching.
