Enjoy Life, Enjoy God

What kind of sermon topics do you like?  What is a sermon that pleases you?

Notice that Jesus' sermons were basically the same as John the Baptist's: repentance, turn back to God and focus on the kingdom, not on the self.  I wonder how John & Jesus would be received today.

A study was recently completed, sermons in the USA focus on "How To's"--how to be happy, how to be a good father, how to be a good citizen, etc.  In the Southern Hemisphere today (where there is a phenomenal revival happening) sermons focus on repentance, and coming back to God.  A market-driven sermon may not be the word from God we'd like to hear.  Just thinkin'.
