Good First Impressions

If we will write, to bring people to Christ, we must always be aware of making a good first impression. We certainly do not want to turn people away from hearing the truth. I offer three ways that we can make that great impression, so people will receive the gospel message. I hope you find it beneficial. If you do, share it with someone else, please.

Preaching Today

Hello, hope you are having a blessed Lord’s Day! I preached this morning on John 8:34-36 and a lesson entitled, “Free From Bondage.” I am writing an article from it that will run on Tuesday. The outline will be on my blog later in the week.

Tonight, I am adapting a sermon by Steve Higginbotham entitled, Learning to Love Correction. It is a good and interesting lesson that will be a practical change of pace for your congregation, if you choose to use it in your work.

Wednesday night, we will finish Hebrews [hopefully] and do a quick two lesson study on Bible translations before moving to the Sermon on the Mount. Should be great.

God Bless all of you!

Fathers, What is Your Legacy?

I have posted my PowerPoint Sermon on my blog. Father’s what can we learn from Hezekiah about how to build our legacy? And we find what are probably the most chilling words any earthly Father speaks in all of Scripture.

Adultery Article and News

Hello, everyone. I hope you are well. I have several things to share today.

First of all, I’m sure I’m not alone in saying that I miss Randal being around.

Second, I have posted an In the News post on my blog. There are over two dozen links to stories on the bad economy and the federal deficit, abortion, homosexuality, how Democrats don’t want Obama to campaign for them, etc. The Senate is considering a bill where the U.N. will give your children the right and legal authority to disobey you or take you to court. This opens up a terrifying scenario.

Third, years ago, I wrote a manuscript in the Greer Lectures in Greer, South Carolina on the topic of,  Is Adultery Covenant Breaking? I have posted my lengthy, scholarly manuscript on this challenging and controversial subject. I hope you find it helpful.

Today, is one month since the situation with my legs began. I go to the doctor on Monday. Your continued prayers are appreciated.
