Our March Prayer List

Life is not about things “to-do” but about things “to-pray” for. Every event should be an opportunity to pray. The calendar should become part of our prayer list! As I look over our schedule week by week I am praying that in every place the Lord Jesus will be glorified, the Holy Spirit will have liberty, and the Father will be pleased. Would you join me in that prayer for the month ahead? Sunday-Tuesday, March 3-5 – Revival, Community Baptist Church, Lenoir City, TN, Pastor Ken Scoggins Monday, March 4 – Chapel, The Crown College, Powell, TN, Dr. Clarence Sexton Sunday-Tuesday, March 10-12 – Revival, Truth Baptist Church, Mechanicsville, VA, Pastor Erik Hastings Sunday, March 17 – Morning and Evening…

“Where Did You Get That Sermon?”

Every preacher is different. The same all-wise God who used the unique personalities and gifts of the Bible writers continues to minister through all different types of men. Over time a man learns how God speaks to him and how he best can receive and relay the Lord’s message to others.  Preaching day after day the Lord is teaching me much about myself and about preaching that no homiletics class or book on preaching can convey. You can take a text from anywhere in the Bible with confidence that it is the very Word of God without error. It will work. But do we not think that God would like to be involved in what we preach to His people?…

Help Us Pray!

This afternoon I am helping to conduct a prayer rally in the Akron-Canton, Ohio area. This meeting with churches from around the region is for one purpose: to set ourselves right with God and to seek God’s face for revival and the advancement of the gospel. Will you help us pray? Today’s prayer meeting is part of preparation for the God Bless America Rally that will be conducted here in Stark County, Ohio on May 1-4, 2019. I look forward to being back to preach in that meeting. But I am convinced that the preaching is in vain without the praying. The first meeting in the book of Acts was a prayer meeting, and all of the preaching and all…

An Open Door To Reach The Colleges And Universities Of America

One of the early gospel efforts Tammy and I were privileged to serve in at Temple Baptist Church was the Christian Volunteers ministry on the campus of the University of Tennessee. During that time over twenty years ago God stirred a deep burden in my heart to reach college students for Christ. Kyle Austin also caught that passion and has now committed himself to helping local churches begin Collegians For Christ chapters at universities and colleges across America. I am happy to share his guest post and hope that you will pray about how God could use you to take the truth to your local campus and touch the world… Where can you go to reach America and its future leaders? Where can you go to reach atheists and agnostics from all over the world? What about Muslims from Saudi Arabia, Iraq, or Iran? What about Buddhists and…

Help Us Spread The Gospel

I love the gospel. It was the good news of Jesus Christ that changed my life and my eternal destiny! Every good thing in my life grows out of the gospel. Day after day I am witnessing the power of the gospel to change hearts and homes. It is the only true light for our nation and the only lasting hope for this generation. Several months ago the Lord led me to write a gospel tract, Would You Like A New Start? Watch the brief story behind the tract here. Over the last few weeks I have met two people who looked at the question on the front of the tract and said the same words: “I need this!” They were different people – one…

Help For Preachers

Today I have the opportunity to preach to a wonderful group of preachers. My heart is to encourage them. Thank the Lord for faithful ministers! Like their Chief Shepherd they live “not to be ministered unto, but to minister.” Yet in the midst of busy lives and labors ministers must pause long enough to minister to their own inner man. Too often while Christian workers are building the kingdom they are tearing down their own souls. It was for this purpose that Pastor Scott Hooks and I hosted The Preacher’s Rest last year in Hickory, North Carolina. The response was overwhelming. We had a wonderful time of fellowship, study, and prayer with so many preachers and their wives. Our desire…

Channels For God

Last week I had the joy of spending a few days with my friend and fellow worker Stephen Troell. He and his beautiful family have been serving in the Middle East for the last six years and are now on the threshold of another great step of faith. Later this year they will transition to Baghdad to continue the work that God has given them to do. Stephen has been of inestimable help to me personally in our work. Faithworks Media produces our website, podcast, and resources. More than that, he has encouraged me to keep launching out into new areas in faith. The Troells are giving their lives to be channels for the love of God. I am writing…

An Early Wake Up Call

It was 5:30 a.m. when it went off. I am used to early flights, wake up calls, and alarms. This was different. In fact, the noise was so loud it almost vibrated me out of bed! The fire alarm in our hotel was deafening. In a matter of moments a knock on the door confirmed that we were being told to evacuate. As I stood on the parking lot with others waiting for the fire department I could not help but think what it will be like someday… “I tell you, in that night there shall be two men in one bed; the one shall be taken, and the other shall be left” (Luke 17:34). Will it be in the…
