    "For we preach not ourselves, but Christ Jesus the Lord; May we see that God is still in charge of His world and that He has a purpose for each of our lives. May we see that people without Christ are lost and need to be saved. Bob Pitman Ministries 38 Valencia . We should pray as we preach because there’s no weightier job on earth, and no one is adequate to do it without God’s help (2 Cor. –17). If anything ought to make a man pray it’s to be a sinner standing before other sinners with the charge to proclaim, “Thus says the Lord.”.

      What we treasure most is what we love most. This is why preaching the gospel to ourselves should be like driving down the road. Instead of swerving away to avoid an accident like we would when driving, we must face trouble head on by preaching the gospel to ourselves. As we daily preach the gospel to ourselves, our self-sufficiency will decrease. Preaching to ourselves means we address ourselves, and our sin and unbelief in particular. We need to properly diagnose our sickness to find the remedy in the word. This is not a time to beat.

      We must be careful that, in preaching the gospel to ourselves, we do not preach a gospel without a cross. We must be careful that we do not rely on the so-called unconditional love of God without realizing that His love can only flow to us as a result of Christ’s atoning death. This is the gospel Bridges wants the Christian to preach to.   For we preach not ourselves, but Christ Jesus the Lord; and ourselves your servants for Jesus’ sake. 2 Corinthians KJV Paul said, we present Christ, not ourselves and the people that Paul was referring to as “not ourselves” were doing fine. Paul himself was a Pharisee of Pharisees but he never presented himself.
