There are some situations in life that help us to value the right things and that will bring our priorities into check. In those situations where we know that we might not have much time, the urgency and seriousness of what’s important comes to the surface. That is the situation the Apostle Paul was going through when he wrote to Timothy about the urgency of our proclamation.Read more
I used to host a readio show where I gave people the opportunity to air their spiritual grievances and objections to Christian faith. I thought it fair game to give people the chance to voice the reasons why they would not or could not follow Jesus. I let my guests speak. I did not respond to their sticking points by grabbing my gospel gun and blasting them with Bible bullets. I let them talk. We had a conversation. When pressed to justify this segment, I said, ”We need to learn to listen and listen to learn.”Read more

The invitation by a Christian is the most crucial part of any evangelistic sermon. You and I are inviting people to go from hell to heaven, death to life, and sinner to saved.

The call of the evangelist is not a seasonal call. We aren’t evangelists for a time and then move on to something else. But this lifelong work can, at times, feel more like a lifelong sentence!

Is the good news of Jesus ever not good news? Is there ever a time where it’s not right to share the gospel? And what happens if we are asked to prove or convince others of its goodness?
We are living in unprecedented times surrounded by so much uncertainty and hopelessness. It is into this context that I believe there is an urgent need to speak the gospel, and that now is the time for us to seize the opportunity to reach the lost and share with them the life transforming message of the gospel. To accomplish this, there are four key qualities that every evangelist needs – we can see them displayed in chapter five of Luke’s gospel, as Jesus calls his early disciples.Read more
How are we to see lasting change in a nation? Is it micro church or mega church? Is it mass evangelism or one-on-one? The reality is, it’s ok to spend money on large-scale mission, however we’re not going to see lasting fruit, unless we step it up in prayer, fasting and proclamation.Read more
Do you ever set a spiritual goal for yourself? I actually never have. I’m not sure why. Probably because it feels useless. But this past year the Lord laid something on my heart… this concept of generosity. And let me tell you, it has radically changed my perspective.Read more
We use the terms ‘sharing your faith’ and ‘sharing the gospel’ interchangeably and yet, they are distinctly different – yet complimentary – activities. Let’s take a look at what makes these two types of ‘sharing’ different and why the distinction is more than just a game of semantics.Read more
