The Aim of Our Preaching

But the goal of our instruction is
love from a pure heart and a
good conscience and a sincere faith.
I Timothy 1:6

Is the goal of your preaching to give the shallow
feel-good that is fleeting at best; or is it to bring
the conviciton of sin, righteousness, and judgment,
that leads to the deeper feel-good which is permanent?

There is a preaching that promotes the feel-good of the flesh,
which is primarily emotional, and as such is a 'passing pleasure'. 
There is also a preaching that produces the feel-good of the spirit,
the peaceful fruit of righteousness, that comes about from being right
  with God, because the true issues of the soul have been dealt with.
