2 Samuel 12:7
And Nathan said to David, You are the man. Thus said the LORD God of Israel, I anointed you king over Israel…
Pulpit power comes of holy boldness. In 1670, Bourdaloue, "the founder of genuine pulpit eloquence in France," preached before his sovereign. Having described a sinner of the first magnitude, lie turned to Louis XIV. and in a voice of thunder cried, "Thou art the man!" The effect on all was electrical. After the sermon the preacher went and fell at the feet of the king, saying: "Sire, behold one of the most devoted of your servants. Punish him not because that in the pulpit he owns no other master than the King of kings."
