Bridges on Preaching: Preaching to No Body

The general sermons that are preached to every body, in fact are preached to no body. (Bridges, The Christian Ministry, p. 272)

What he means by this is that if a sermon does not have specific application to the people sitting in front of the preacher and the situation they are in the sermon was a waste of time.

Let the saints be joyful in glory, let them sing aloud on their beds, let the high praises of God be in their mouth, and a two edged sword in their hand, to execute vengeance on the nations, and punishments on the peoples; to bind the kings with chains and their nobles with fetters of iron. Psalm 149:5-8
