Charles Simeon on preaching

Charles Simeon in the preface to Horae Homileticae wrote that three questions should be asked of a prepared sermon: “Does it uniformly tend TO HUMBLE THE SINNER? TO EXALT THE SAVIOUR? TO PROMOTE HOLINESS? If in any one instance it loses sight of any of these points, let it be condemned without mercy”
Thanks to Andrew Groves for this timely reminder.
