For as the lightning flashes and lights up the sky from one side to the other, so will the Son of Man be in his day. Luke 17:24
But for you who fear My name, the sun of righteousness shall rise with healing in its wings. Malachi 4:2

But far be it from me to boast except in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ . . . Galatians 6:14
For I decided to know nothing among you except Jesus Christ and him crucified. 1 Corinthians 2:2
Let the motto upon your whole ministry be - "Christ is All!" - Mather

Our System Is Christ Is All And In All!

Charles Bridges wisely described the main characteristics of a preacher's ministry:
"Simplicity, and godly sincerity" - not talent or eloquence - are the principles of our agency. One short sentence describes our system - "Christ is all, and in all." He is not only exhibited in the picture, but in the foreground - as the principal figure - where every part of the picture is subordinated, to give Him that prominence and effect, which attract the eye and the heart exclusively to Him.

Charles Bridges, The Christian Ministry (Carlisle: Banner of Truth, 2006), 257.
