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…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

KEYS TO PREACHING WITHOUT NOTES

It has been some time since I have written a blog on preaching. In fact, you will have to scroll down past 10 blogs to May 9, in Thinking In The Spirit to find my last entry in this series. You have to scroll down 5 more to find the first of them. But I recently heard a sermon that made me long to emphasize keys to preaching without notes. The sermon I heard was taken from Colossians 3 & 4. And it contained vital truths for our lives. The preacher’s text began at Colossians 3:12 and reached…See More

Talitha Cumi טְלִיחָא קוּמִי

The Gospels were written in Greek. But in all of them certain Aramaic or Hebrew words are included and are usually translated. One of the reasons for this is that the writer was present when striking Hebrew words were spoken. They were so vivid in Mark's mind, that he quoted them. I believe that is true when Matthew and Mark quote Jesus on the cross saying, “Eloi, Eloi, lema sabachthani," "My God, my God, Why have you forsaken me!" Although this is also a quote from the 22nd Psalm.One…See More

A WRITING SABBATH

Do you take a Sabbath from your writing. I recommend it, if you can. I say, if you can, because many of you write while maintaining a real job. And you won't write much if don't write in every free moment you can muster. But after retiring from active pastoring, I began trying to write full-time. At that point, God was convicting me of not taking days off, or taking time for spiritual and physical renewal in my 45 or so years as a pastor. So I begin full-time writing with a Sabbath. I don't…See More

CARVING OUT WHAT I NEED TO SAY

A friend recently noticed a cane carved for me by my brother-in-law. And he wondered what kind of power tools he used. I told him I thought he didn’t use much more than a pocket knife and sandpaper. He said, "That would be a lot of work!" I too have hand carved several walking sticks, although not as beautiful as my brother-in-law’s. And I find that, though painstaking, the work can be very satisfying.I feel the same about the process of editing something I have written. I used to fear editing…See More

GLORY IN THE CROSS

Mostly because of medical treatments, I don’t preach much any more. But from time to time, God still encourages me with a sermon idea. And at least with this one, I decided to publish a brief of the sermon in this blog.Glory In The Cross(C.I.T.: Paul wanted to avoid glorying in anything but the cross of Jesus.Focus: GloryingPEOPLE:PURPOSE: Consecrative; I want my hearers to desire to glory in the cross.THRUST: We need to glory in the cross alone.PICTURE: "Well done good and faithful servant.…See More

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

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!!
