Which sermon?

As we approach the celebration of Easter, the resurrection of Jesus ... preceded, of course, by the rememberance of Good Friday, the crucifixion of Jesus, I have been pondering two little thoughts these days:

1. I read this the other day: 90% of sermons preached in the American church can be summed up in two words:

TRY HARDER!

and,

2.  The Holy Spirit preaches only one sermon, over and over. These three words:

IT. IS. FINISHED.

Which sermon ultimately drives your life?

Which sermon is Easter about?

Which sermon sounds like "Good News?"
