God's Mountain Man - 1 Kings 17:1 - Mar 7, 2006 - 187

Last December right after the tsunami disaster, my friend Ramesh Richard, a professor at Dallas Seminary, sent an email that contained a simple, one-sentence prayer. He called it a “dangerous prayer.” The moment I saw that prayer I knew that it was going to be my prayer for 2005. It goes ... More

What Was That I Never Heard You Say? - James 1:19 - Apr 8, 2006 - 539

Perhaps you’ve heard the story of the woman who went to see a lawyer about getting a divorce. The lawyer decided it would be helpful if he could get a little background so he asked the woman if she had grounds for a divorce. “Yes,” she said, “as a matter of fact, about an ac ... More

This is a sermon about conflict in the church—where it comes from and how to handle it. As a place to begin, I’d like to start with the observation that most church conflicts fall into one of two categories. Let’s talk first about the second category.Category 2 conflicts are those ... More

Integrity: The Ultimate Virtue - Various - Jan 1, 1995 - 613

I want to begin this sermon by giving you a verse of Scripture that is hard to know where it fits. It is Proverbs 24:26. It seems to fit well on the first Sunday of the new year. It says, “An honest answer is like a kiss on the lips.” What does that mean? What is the relationship between ... More

From Sodom to Oak Park - Genesis 19 - Jun 2, 1996 - 24

Genesis 19 tells one of the most dramatic stories in all the Bible. Even people who never go to church know that God destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah with a flood of burning sulphur. They have heard about Lot’s encounter with the angelic visitors, the desperate last-second escape, and the strang ... More

Justice: The Real American Dream - Proverbs 24:11-12 - Sep 18, 1994 - 623

I’d like to begin by telling you something that I ran across in a bookstore. I think you might be interested in this. When I started these sermons on Proverbs, I challenged you to take the Book of Proverbs and read it through in a month. There are 31 chapters in Proverbs, 31 days in most month ... More

The Rod of God: When Love Says No - Hebrews 12:5-11; Proverbs 13:34 - May 16, 1999 - 299

“Spare the rod and spoil the child.” It’s an old saying and like most things old, it has been neglected of late. But there is the ring of truth about it. If you spare the rod, you will indeed spoil your child. This is the clear testimony of Holy Scripture and of centuries of human exp ... More

Angry Man Alert - Aug 29, 2008

I would like to begin by calling your attention to two uncomfortable verses in the New Testament. If these verses don’t bother you, they should.Colossians 3:19 says, “Husbands, love your wives and do not be embittered against them.” It’s not the first part that grabs our atte ... More

Bad Manners at the Dinner Table - Galatians 2:11-14 - Jun 30, 2010 - 1251

Before doing anything else, take a moment and make sure you read our text: “When Peter came to Antioch, I opposed him to his face, because he was clearly in the wrong. Before certain men came from James, he used to eat with the Gentiles. But when they arrived, he began to draw back and separat ... More

Love Means Telling the Truth - 2 Corinthians 7:8-13 - Aug 17, 2011 - 1292

Let’s take a little quiz together called “What would you do if.” What would you do if someone in your church sued another member for slander? Before you answer, consider the second question. What would you do if you discovered a case of incest by one of the leading men of the ch ... More

The Tongue: Life and Death Are In Your Mouth! - Proverbs 18:20-21 - Oct 9, 1994 - 618

Proverbs has a lot to say about what we say. In fact, the subject of the tongue and how we use our words is perhaps the preeminent theme of this book. Over 150 times in this book alone, Proverbs refers to our lips, our mouth and our tongue. One of the central issues of the Book of Proverbs is how yo ... More

Portrait of a Godly Leader - I Timothy 3; Titus 1 - Mar 17, 1993 - 418

We begin with the words of Robert Cook: “There is no substitute for character. You can buy brains, but you can’t buy character.” When it comes to selecting leaders, nothing is more important than godly character. You can buy talent … or brains … or knowledge &helli ... More
