Every church that takes seriously the Great Commission must take seriously the need to plant more churches that will make disciples who plant more churches . . . and this is the pattern until Christ returns.
John Piper waited until the end of his pastoral ministry before he preached through Romans. I didn’t have that much wisdom, so I dove in.
Here are three reasons why content isn’t everything—and four strategies to avoid boring teaching
The book of Acts is the narrative of how God’s end-times promises have begun to be fulfilled by the risen Lord Jesus through the Spirit-empowered apostolic preaching of the gospel to all people and the establishing of local churches.
On the first Sunday of 2019, our church started a Sunday evening service. Here’s how and why we did it.
Too many sermons focus on the biblical text, but fail to exposit the main point of the scriptural passage under consideration.
Preach through this Gospel and bring your people to the feet of the Messiah to understand his identity, his power, his mission, and their own mission.
Even though Luke is the longest book in the New Testament, I want to encourage pastors to preach through the whole book.
The task which I have set myself in this lecture is to focus and explicate a belief which, by and large, is a distinguishing mark of the word-wide evangelical fraternity: namely, the belief that the cross had the character of penal substitution, and that it was in virtue of this fact that it brought salvation to mankind.
How can a church in a secular setting work toward a culture where discussing God’s wrath and substitutionary atonement isn’t frowned upon but celebrated?
Did Jesus himself understand his death as a penal substitutionary atonement? Or did later New Testament authors make it up?
Penal substitution offers a helpful corrective to those living in an honor-shame culture, and helps them rightly understand their status before God and what God has done for sinners in Jesus Christ.
How do we preach the cross without communicating some kind of rupture in the Trinity?
At the root of every caricature of penal substitutionary atonement is a distorted doctrine of God.
Some professing Christians don’t know what it means when we say “Jesus died for you.” Pulpits are to blame for this serious confusion.
