Like a Loaf of Bread without Any Flour in It

C. H. Spurgeon:
The motto of all true servants of God must be, "We preach Christ, and him crucified." A sermon without Christ in it is like a loaf of bread without any flour in it. No Christ in your sermon, sir? Then go home, and never preach again until you have something worth preaching.
—"Sermon 2899," in Metropolitan Tabernacle Pulpit: Sermons (London: Passmore & Alabaster, 1904), 50:431, as cited in Michael Reeves, Delighting in the TrinityAn Introduction to the Christian Faith (Downers Grove: InterVarsity Press, 2012), 84.
