John The Baptist And His Seeker Driven Preaching

I was reading Luke 3 this evening before bed, and was struck by the preaching of John the Baptist. He is a fine example of seeker driven preaching. We read the following: "He said therefore to the crowds that came out to be baptized by him, "You brood of vipers! Who warned you to flee from the wrath to come? Bear fruits in keeping with repentance. And do not begin to say to yourselves, 'We have Abraham as our father.' For I tell you, God is able from these stones to raise up children for Abraham. Even now the ax is laid to the root of the trees. Every tree therefore that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire."" Luke 3:7-9 I will let you form your own conclusions from that.
