May 31st, 2019 · 1 Comment · Preaching

We all have our favorite verses. If we aren’t careful those same scriptures will end up in our preaching and teaching over and over again. It was this realization and a desire to cover more of the Bible than I normally would that led me to track the scriptures I include in my sermons on […]

June 7th, 2016 · 1 Comment · Ministry, Preaching

An “Aha” About God’s Love for Me from 1 John 1

December 7th, 2015 · No Comments · Angels, Church, Church of Christ, Preaching

I am not much of a self promoter so that is not what this is about at all but I feel compelled to share something here that I shared yesterday morning. Fast forward to 1:13:30.
