Like J.D. said, preaching is about God. He is the point. While it's important to talk about having a healthy marriage or purpose in daily life, those are secondary to the need for restoration with God through faith in Christ. Be intentional with your leadership to make God the point of all you do. Show those around you the hope of Christ and allow His restoring work to transform their circumstances.
