Dynamics of Preaching - Intro

Acts 28:31-31
Topic: Dynamics Of Preaching
“Dynamics of Preaching”—what is that? Some refer to it as “homiletics”—the science or “art of composing and preaching sermons.” This sounds too scientific, conjuring up pictures of a man wearing a lab coat, disheveled hair, and big glasses, in a room full of apparatus. He is searching for a solution to some mind-boggling problem. [ read more... ]

Acts 14:17-17
Topic: Dynamics Of Preaching
Have you ever stopped to consider, “What is a preacher?” William Evans in How to Prepare Sermons defines a preacher as someone who is “separated by God for the specific work of preaching the Gospel and is a man who from one side of his nature takes in the truth from God and from the other side gives out that truth to men.

God of this City - Lord of this Nation

Acts 18:9-11
Topic: Evangelism
If asked to describe your city in one to three words, what would quickly come to mind? Swarming streets, tedious traffic, soiled slums, soaring skyscrapers, boulevard beggars and constant commotion begin the list. Then there is polluted air, sleepless, exciting nightlife, trade centers, unorganized, mindless, energetic, enormous, sprawling, materialistic, industrious, historic, noisy, primitive, advanced, modern, interesting, smoky, breathtaking, magnificent, hot, humid and on and on. Surely, a list of good and bad, negative and positive would speedily be generated. There is: lost, unreached, dark, hopeless, desperate, unpromising, worldly, and wicked to add. Did I mention sinful? Doesn’t it cause your heart to sink, feel sick and sad? But, there is hope. [ read more... ]

The Prodigals are Coming Home!

Acts 20:29-31
Topic: Revival
This lesson focuses on those that have heard the gospel before and have, at one time or another, walked in truth. But, for some reason, have walked or strayed away from it. Some slip, slide, or skid to the fringes of the Apostolic movement and don’t even recognize their risky state. They are commonly referred to as ‘prodigals’ or ‘backsliders.’ Neither word seems to be explicitly found in the King James Version of the Bible. However, both are unmistakably referenced there.

In 1 and 2 Samuel we find the story of Saul and David. David, anointed the next king of Israel by the prophet Samuel, had been asked by his father to check on his brothers in battle.

Realizing that there was a great cause (I Samuel 17:29), he fights and defeats the giant. This great feat was done with a slingshot and just one smooth stone.

Listening to the Voice of God

Topic: General
What comes to mind when you think of pastors, evangelists and Bible teachers? These are people who preach and teach the Word of God. Being a man of God is not just about preaching or speaking. In order to speak, “Thus saith the Lord” the preacher must first listen to God. It is a big problem when preachers do not take time to hear God’s voice. What a tragedy when they speak what people want to hear instead of what God directs. [ read more... ]
