June 1, 2017

I wanted to know why Jesus would say something that seems shocking and perhaps even cruel. Out of that study came a message called Mega-Faith. Along the way I discovered that […]

2. My Sermon on the Sunday After 9/11

September 11, 2016

In the last 24 hours I have an opportunity to revist the sermon I preached on the Sunday after 9/11. At that point America was still struggling with the enormity of what happened just five days earlier. In that sermon, called Living by Faith in an Uncertain World, I wrapped up by giving Five Lessons to Ponder.I share them here because ten years lat...

9. My Sermon Prep Idea

September 26, 2014

In my 27 years as a pastor, I am fairly sure that I never came up with any distinctively new approaches to sermonizing. However, somewhere along the way I developed one practice that, as often as I used it, always served me well. Before I describe it, I should say that it rests upon two assumptions.1) You don’t know a ...

22. Don’t Be a Sermon Stealer!

The following note arrived over the weekend:We have discovered that our pastor is preaching sermons directly from your website virtually verbatim.

23. Titles That Tick

August 15, 2012

Recently H. B. Charles Jr. offered some wise counsel about sermon titles. He says that preachers don’t give enough thought to their titles. In this day of extremely short attention spans, a well-thought-out title can be the door that opens the way for a biblical sermon to do its work.Here are three general principles for choosing a good title...

25. Sinner, Listen to This

May 20, 2012

Last night I happened to find a digital copy of an old book called The Gospel of Forgiveness, published in 1878 by Scottish theologian Robert Candlish. It is essentially a 19th-century “gospel book,” written to convince sinners to come to Christ. Within its cover the reader finds a great deal of warmhearted gospel appeal. One get the se...

Ebook: In His Steps

No one who met our Lord ever stayed the same. If Christmas tells us why Jesus came, then Easter tells us he fully accomplished his mission. In between those two events we have the whole life of Christ. That’s our focus as we walk “In His Steps”, a book of 47 devotionals for the season of Lent (the period of time leading up to Easter).

“Equipping and encouraging people to keep believing in Jesus”

“Now may the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.”
