Charles Simeon on Preaching

A quick nugget here from Charles Simeon (via John Stott's lecture on Simeon) on preaching.  His simple three-part description of the goal of preaching should cause all preachers to reevaluate the motivations and results of their own preaching.  

Simeon said that preaching should: 

1. Humble the sinner
2. Exalt the Savior
3. Promote holiness
