Stay on point and push that point hard until it breaks skin.
Now when they heard this they were cut to the heart, and said to Peter and the rest of the apostles, “Brothers, what shall we do?”
If you push the main point, you will break the skin.
The hardened surface will give way to the pointed charge of Christ crucified when by grace the Spirit shows up to provide faith.
For the word of God is living and effective and sharper than any double-edged sword, penetrating as far as the separation of soul and spirit, joints and marrow. It is able to judge the ideas and thoughts of the heart.
If you push the main point, your blows will penetrate to the deep places of a person where only God can restore and renew by His mercy.
Stick to the point.
If you get dull in the pulpit, your words will fall harmlessly to the ground after they collide with toughness of heart
If you stay sharp, you just may see people reborn as their callouses are breached by God’s grace.
