Every week when I was a pastor, I did what I called walking my sermons. Although this depends on the Biblical foundations I wrote about last week, I believe it is the most valuable advice I can give…Continue

What I am teaching is expository or direct Biblical preaching. I believe there is a place for topical preaching and apologetic, or subject teaching. But you will find great power in sharing what God…Continue

FEAR AND GREAT JOY

In Matthew 28:8, we read,"So they departed quickly from the tomb with fear and great joy."Fear and joy do not always go together. And many translations emphasize the difference with something like “They departed with great joy, even though they were afraid.” However, this differentiation does not reflect the wording of this passage in the original language of  The New Testament. In this verse it simply lays them out together. And when we come into the presence of the Son of God, fear and great…See More

SOME DOUBTED

When I first thought about writing this series, I was primarily thinking of positive things God shows us through quiet things in the Gospel accounts. But the implications of some of them are negative. One of them accompanies the Great Commission.Look with me at Matthew 28:16-17."Now the eleven disciples went to Galilee, to the mountain to which Jesus had directed them. And when they saw him, they worshiped him, but some doubted."How do you explain doubt in those who met and even embraced the…See More

WHY DO I WRITE?

I write as a ministry. And I pray that people will come face to face with the Living God in my writings.One of my books was just released, AGAPE, The Infinite, Ultimate Love of God. I pray that God will touch the lives of people through this book. I do pray that it will sell well. I pray, and I ask you to pray with me, that God will use it to touch the lives of people around the world.I pray that God will allow me to write more books. And I pray that He will do more in the lives of more and…See More

THE AUTHORITY OF FRIENDSHIP

In John 15:15 Jesus said something I don't think I have ever heard emphasized."No longer do I call you servants, for the servant does not know what his master is doing; but I have called you friends."The Great Commission actually begins with Jesus saying, “All Authority in Heaven and Earth has been given to me.” In a sense He is saying, “Listen, I'm in charge." We speak of the laws of nature reflecting God's Authority. And we understand that these laws are absolute. For instance, we know that…See More

WITH THE WILD ANIMALS

WITH THE WILD ANIMALSThe Gospel of Mark begins like thunder, with the prophecy of Isaiah and the ministry of John the Baptist. In rapid succession Mark runs through the events leading up to the temptation of Jesus in the wilderness. Then Mark rushes on without giving us the details of His temptation found in Matthew and Luke. But he gives a quiet detail not found in the other Gospels. Look with me at Mark 1:13“And he was in the wilderness forty days, being tempted by Satan. And he was with the…See More

QUIET THINGS IN THE GOSPELS

Over the entire course of my ministry I have been drawn to thunderous things in the Bible. I love Elijah's prayer as he called fire from heaven, and the day the sun stood still for Joshua, Isaiah's seeing the Lord in Isaiah 6, the angels at the birth of Jesus, the voice from heaven at His baptism, the mount of transfiguration, the earthquake at the cross, the angel rolling the stone from the tomb, and hundreds more.But lately God has been drawing me to quiet things, especially in the life of…See More

WAGING SPIRITUAL WAR

I have recently been made more aware of serious problems in our nation, and of spiritual attack in the lives of people that I love. These things are frustrating. And one of the most frustrating factors in my seeing these things is that I cannot see anything I can do to have any appreciable effect. But while I cannot help in the physical realm, I know I can have great effect in the spiritual realm where the real battle will be fought. Paul wrote about this in 2 Corinthians 10. Verse 3 says as…See More

LISTENING

LISTENINGListening is one of the most powerful tools you can employ to improve your preaching. Of course, we primarily need to listen to God. In Isaiah 55:3 God calls us to do just that.“Give ear and come to me. Hear me that your soul may live.”You can listen to God in your reading. First, read the Scriptures. Every Pastor needs a regular system of reading God's word that is separate from you sermon studies. You will have trouble encouraging your people to open their lives to Scripture, if you…See More

STORYTELLING

STORYTELLINGWhen I was a boy, our pastor was Dr. Max Stanfield. That may not mean anything to you if you are not from Oklahoma, and now, if you are not really old. Dr. Max died in the dark ages when I was 13. But he was a marvellous preacher, and a wonderful pastor. He had been a college football player, and a collegiate champion debater. Above all else, I remember Max as a consummate storyteller. He used to tell the character stories in our two week Vacation Bible School. And he held hundreds…See More

David, I'm sorry to take so long to get back to you - have been sick for a couple of weeks and not on PN.  Try this link for the China prayer cast - I got it directly from YouTube.

David, apologies for taking so long to get back to you - my recent out-of-state move has pretty much dominated my time and I'm only now getting back to being on PN consistently.  I appreciate what you shared and the heart of integrity behind it.  You are a great example to me! 

I would also say that praying for the SC justices by name and simply leaving in God's hands how he wants to work in their lives and through their rulings is a very valid way to pray.  The strength of our prayers is not in the words, but in the One to whom we pray - not that you need to hear that from me!!
