Listening To The Word Of God

Acts 10:33-33

Topics: General

No need to shake yourself awake. This is not a dream. Every preacher yearns for people to come to church anxious to hear a message from God’s anointed messenger. This usually does not consistently happen. However, as preachers, there are ways that we can prepare our people to hear the life-transforming Word of God.

Look At Us! Ministering With Boldness

Acts 3:4-4
Topic: Leadership
At Pentecost Peter stood up in boldness to proclaim what was taking place. What a difference this was to just a few days earlier denying he even knew Jesus Christ. Following this, we see the disciples possessing faith, power, and boldness. We see them being used in the healing of the lame man at the Gate Beautiful in Acts Chapter 3. Here we also see the Gifts of the Spirit starting to be used. In this lesson we will deal with the boldness displayed by Peter and John. It is this boldness that causes us to wake up the spiritual gifts wanting to operate through us and causes us to press forward even in the face of opposition, persecution, and problems. We realize, “no weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper” (Isaiah 54:17). [ read more... ]

Mighty In The Scriptures

Acts 18:24-25
Topic: Doctrine
Acts Chapter 18 opens with an interesting testimony of a man called Apollos. In the opening verses we read of a man who was eloquent, mighty in the Scriptures, and received instruction. He also taught and preached what he knew. Beyond the descriptive phrases written about Apollos, we see a further hidden quality in his walk with God. This begins with “knowing only the baptism of John.”(18: 25) Apollos was a sincere man who was walking in every light of the Scripture that he had received. There was a longing in his spirit to obey all of what God had in store for him. His understanding of the Word of God and the things of God, led him to accept John’s baptism. [ read more... ]

Mushrooms or a Mighty Oak Tree

Acts 20:29-30
Topic: Doctrine
The Apostle Paul realized that Satan would raise up false teachers from even within the church who would bring in false teachings, doctrine, pagan practices, worldly ideas, and man-made trends. They are like dangerous animals attacking the church and are difficult to handle. They are like wolves that wish to attack and kill the sheep. We, as leaders, must be very careful to make sure that such wolves will not enter and destroy any of the flock of God. We must guard the truth! [ read more... ]

The Preacher’s Priorities

It is a struggle to keep our lives moving according to our priorities. [ read more... ]

Discovering The Biblical Views Of Missions

Luke 24:47-47
Topic: Our Witness
I admit it. I’m soft on missions! After twenty-three years of missionary service in Africa, tears still flow when I hear songs like “People Need the Lord” (Steve Green). A sense of mission still wells up when I see the parade of missionary flag-bearers march in during our general conference missions’ service. Globes, and maps of the world—more especially of the African continent—serve as interior decorations in my office; signifying, as well, the interior décor of my heart. They constantly remind me of my destiny in life. [ read more... ]

When the pastor announces a series or message on doctrine a number of things go through the minds of some of the members. Boring. Snoring. Doctrine—bad-tasting medicine.

Some people hope they can use it as an excuse to visit in-laws or to stay home from church and wash clothes or clean house. But the study of doctrine is important. [ read more... ]
