You Preached Right at Me

by admin

You Preached Right at Me  Author Unknown Frequently after a preacher of the gospel declares the pure and plain Word of God in a scriptural and forceful manner, someone in the audience will complain to him, “You preached right at me!”  Actually it is a good thing for the complainer to apply the lesson in […]

What Were They Told?

by admin

What Were They Told? Author Unknown In the first century when sinners were convicted of their sins and obviously believed that “that same Jesus whom” they had “crucified” had been made “both Lord and Christ”, they said unto Peter and to the rest of the apostles, “Men and brethren, WHAT SHALL WE DO?” They were […]

Truth’s Narrow Door

by admin

Truth’s Narrow Door Earl Kimbrough Jesus said, “Strive to enter in by the narrow door.” (Luke 13:24, RV). Truth is always narrow. This is true of all truth. Two plus two equals four. Of all the answers that might be given as the sum of two plus two, only one is right. A person who […]

Poison

by admin

Poison Author Unknown A worldly-wise lady said, “Oh! Oh! All the religions have so much good in them! We shouldn’t criticize or condemn any of them.” To this, a wise man replied, “So has rat poison a lot of good in it; it is 98% cornmeal, yet the 2% poison in it is enough to […]

Preacher’s Point

by admin

Preacher’s Point “I would rather have thousands to say to me at the judgment, ‘We heard you preach, and you hurt our feelings,’ than to have just one lost soul to say, ‘[ heard you preach, but you did not tell me the truth.’” (John T. Lewis)   

The Kind of Preaching We Need

by admin

THE KIND OF PREACHING WE NEED Greg Gwin People may have various views about preachers and their work, but the Bible plainly states the kind of preaching that is needed in the world today. We need preaching that is: 1. Bible-based: The Lord told Jonah to “preach the preaching I bid thee” (Jonah 3:2). Some […]

They’ll Do It Every time

by admin

THEY’LL DO IT EVERY TIME The Preacher had just concluded a hot and scathing sermon on the sin of swearing. He had stated several times that he knew one of his hearers was guilty. When the sermon was over, the people filed out the door. First was a lady who was never suspected of using […]

Preach a Sermon Preacher

by admin

PREACH A SERMON PREACHER Hugh Davis Preach a sermon preacher but make it short and sweet; Our stomachs strike at twelve o’clock a hungering for to eat. Preach a sermon preacher with words so smooth and fair; For philosophy and theory we are thirsting; for scripture we don’t care. Preach a sermon preacher, punctuate it […]

Amen

by admin

Amen David J. Riggs It appears to me that we are living in an age where preachers are trying to be sensational instead of spiritual, shocking instead of scriptural, cute rather than correct, clever instead of clear, different rather than doctrinal, and unusual in the place of unerring.  What we need today is more fearless […]

True Life

by admin

True Life The goal of the gospel is to prepare people for heaven.  Its emphasis centers upon happiness in a life to come rather than upon this life.  “For what profit is it to be a man,” Jesus once asked, “if he gains the whole world and loses his own soul?”  The Lord would teach […]

How True

by admin

How True  Sometimes when a congregation is seeking a preacher they want: The strength of an eagle, The grace of a swan, The gentleness of a dove, The friendliness of a sparrow, The night hours of an owl, The dress of a peacock. And when they find such a bird they expect him to live […]

Is It Narrow Minded?

by admin

IS IT NARROW MINDED? Jere Frost I don’t know about you, but I get a little weary of hearing the word “narrow” used as a slur against preachers who adhere to the Bible in their preaching. Sure they are “narrow,” but so are factory workers, surgeons, druggists, and teachers. The factory worker is so “narrow” […]

Steamed Up Over A Sermon

by admin

Steamed Up Over A Sermon? John Clark Did you ever get really “steamed up” over a sermon?  If you have not you have missed a fascinating human experience.  I have some “what to do in case of” thoughts on the matter.  Next time you get upset at a lesson, you try these things. First, you […]

Modern Preachers

by admin

Modern Preachers “The modern preacher takes a few tablets of the doctrine  of  Christ, dissolves them in a gallon or two of sentimental rose water, puts a little of the solution in an atomizer and sprays the congregation to the tune of “sweet spirited” Christianity and the fragrance of a gentle life. If, by evaporation, […]

“Break It to Me Gently”

by admin

“Break It To Me Gently” There were two brothers, John and Richard, who lived in the same town. John lived with his twelve-year-old cat. Richard lived with their eighty-eight year old mother. John’s whole life was his cat. He never went anywhere without her. One day he was faced with a terrible decision. He had […]

What Is a Sermon for?

by admin

WHAT IS A SERMON FOR? People often say after a service, “How did you like the sermon?” This is not the most important question to ask. The crucial question is not “Did you like it?” but “Did it HELP you?” Sermons are not preached TO BE LIKED but TO BE LIVED! Did the sermon bring […]

Can We Have Too Much Positive Preaching?

by admin

Can We Have Too Much Positive Preaching? Greg Gwin We readily acknowledge the importance of positive preaching.  Brethren need the “comfort of the Scriptures” (Romans15:4).  Paul sent Tychicus to the Ephesians so that he could “comfort your hearts.”  Timothy was dispatched to Philippi (Philippians 2:9) and Thessalonica (1 Thessalonians 3:2) in order to comfort the […]

Who, or What is Right?

by admin

 Who, or What is Right? Very few preachers I have known or heard have mounted a rostrum to declare to an audience, “I am right in all that I believe, teach and practice and anyone who will not accept this cannot be right with God.” What I have heard, and through the years tried to […]

A Preacher’s Wildest Dreams Realized!

by admin

A Preacher’s Wildest Dream Realized! We love to hear you extrapolate About the meaning of Christ’s word; We simply cannot get enough; Expounding on things of the Lord! We hate to see you close the book When “now in conclusion” you say We wish your sermon would continue on Such short sermons are our dismay! […]

They Were All Wrong

by admin

 They Were All Wrong A good many years ago, a preacher went into a town where there was no New Testament church. He preached in a house of worship and then in the market place of the city. Soon the religious leaders of the city heard him and invited him to address them. They thought […]

A Preacher Who Wouldn’t Do

by admin

A Preacher Who Wouldn’t Do      A church was in need of a preacher.  One of the elders was interested in finding out just what kind of a preacher the church wanted.  In order to do this he composed a letter as though it had been received from a preacher and read it to the […]

Bible Preaching

by admin

BIBLE PREACHING John the Baptist’s message from the wilderness was not “Smile—God loves you.”  It was “O generation of vipers, who hath warned you to flee from the wrath to come.” Jeremiah was not put into a miry pit for preaching, “I’m OK; you’re OK.”  It was for crying against adultery, idolatry and other wickedness […]
