Honoring Christ In Our Preaching-Day 3

How to Learn, Not What To Think … The most important thing we can learn to do, is to preach the Truth to ourselves. In my 18 years of teaching, I’ve seen educator after educator, and preacher after preacher assume that their audience knows the Word because they teach it to them. In my experience, it’s exactly the opposite. People don’t know how to learn,  from our methods, only what to think. We...

Honoring Christ In Our Preaching-Day 2

1 Peter 3:15 says, “but in your hearts honor Christ the Lord as holy, always being prepared to make a defense to anyone who asks you for a reason for the hope that is in you; yet do it with gentleness and respect.” What causes someone to ask you to tell them the truth? It seems this is what Peter’s getting at. He seems to imply that our “preaching” should be so loud through our “living” that it demands a question. So how...

Honoring Christ In Our Preaching-Day 1

Questions Over Statements: Let me just pose to you something and see if it changes what you think of preaching. Here goes … If you were to go through the entire ministry and life of Jesus, and create a ratio from all of the things he said, you would come up with this: Jesus asked 4 questions for every 1 statement he made. Think about that … that the all-knowing God and most wise King of the universe stooped down to us to ask...

Honoring Christ In Human Rights-Day 6

Fasting & Feasting Pt. 1 The original mandate given to Adam by God, was to multiply, cultivate the world, and produce. Unfortunately, our world today is driven by consumption. We consume food, drink, programs, services, and most of all, people. The church, though it should be a glowing example of production and human flourishing, often turns into the same program-riddled machine that eats and wears people out as...

Honoring Christ In Toil And Suffering- Day 2

Over at MakeJesusCulture.com we had Latiphah Alattis talk about songwriting, but in the midst of it she grew very honest about her father’s funeral. Her father died young, all things considered, and she was a younger woman when it happened. As a Christian songwriter, the despair really sang pretty deep into her melancholy spirit and festered there. Meanwhile, the parishioners and fellow citizens all passed her by ignorant of the...

Honoring Christ In Toil And Suffering- Day 1

At MakeJesusCulture.com we had several speakers talk on toil and suffering in their work. One of them was Harrison Hollingsworth, the New York City ballet conductor and bassoonist who leads worshippers at Redeemer Presbyterian Downtown. His main talk revolved around how meaningless our toil is without relationships – particularly relationship with the father of heavenly lights. And this of course applies to all made things, whether...
