And he said to them,
“O foolish ones, and slow of heart to believe all that the prophets have spoken! Was it not necessary that the Christ should suffer these things and enter into his glory?”
And beginning with Moses and all the Prophets, he interpreted to them in all the Scriptures the things concerning himself. 
Thesis #1: What Jesus did on the Emmaus road is what every message preached ought to do.
The message might be about unity in the body, or marital relationships, or parenting principles, or the resurrection, or business ethics; It might be from the book of Joshua, or Proverbs, or Psalms, or Ezekiel, or from the gospel of Luke, or the letters of Paul, or the book of James, or the Apocalypse of John; it might me long or short, first person narrative or expository exhortation. But it’s goal ought to be to interpret the Scripture under examination in light of Christ.
Spurgeon once described his approach to preaching by saying, “I take my text and make a bee-line to the cross.” He burned with a desire to preach the Good News and see people won to faith in Jesus Christ.  (Click here for a great Spurgeon anecdote on this point.)
Spurgeon’s approach led him to some strange interpretations at times, but I think its impulse is right.
Go into the typical Bible professing, Bible teaching, evangelical believing church today and you are likely to hear either a good biblical exposition of a text or a bad moralistic self-help message on living a better life (with some Bible proof texts), but what you are most unlikely to hear is a pastor “beat a path to the cross of Christ” and give a clear, complete, and logical declaration of the gospel. He may believe it. He doesn’t preach it. Sometimes he thinks he has preached it but the reality is that his gospel presentation was garbled and uncompelling.
