Offending the Spirit in Our Preaching

image "I believe we are grieving and quenching the Holy Spirit when we say less than what the Bible says in an effort not to offend anyone or more than the Bible says in order to impress everyone.  The reality is that we are offending someone--the Holy Spirit--and he is not impressed!  Preaching that is soft on sin and fearful of confronting people reveals that we prefer the Spirit of God who comforts us but run from the Spirit who convicts us."

--Greg Heisler, Spirit Led Preaching, p. 60.
