Preach Yourself Much?

In an excerpt from this.

You’ll read this:

What does it mean to “not preach ourselves?” It means that we don’t put ourselves forward as the appeal to unbelievers in our ministry. We don’t make our methodology or our style the draw. We don’t appeal to that which is fleshly or worldly in the unbeliever in order to attract and compel their participation. Instead, we do everything we can to get ourselves out of the way so as to be merely incidental—merely the finger that points to the substance, to the content of the message: that Jesus Christ is Lord.
