Alistair Begg is helpful here, “For preachers, or for those who may feel called to becomepreachers, concern for the nature of God’s grace should be matched by a concern about the manner in which that grace is communicated. If we’re going to declare the good news of Jesus—if we’re going to tell people that God’s wrath was satisfied and His love demonstrated at the cross—then we must do so in a way that’s both truthful and winsome. Many labor to do the former; few seem to give even a second of thought to the latter. Paul’s pattern for preaching grace, however, involves both sound content and sound communication.”
