“People are often saved through a fragment of truth. What comes next is vital” Terry Virgo

537835

One of the most fatal errors in church ministry would be to assume that people who respond to the gospel on a Sunday morning or at an evangelistic meeting fully understand what they are doing. For many of them, the response is an emotional one to a piece of truth that resonated with them. To simply assume that the person is now a Christian and needs no further help would be foolish indeed. In an ideal world such people will be followed up personally, but sometimes that simply can't happen. Our … [Read more...]

Become more confident in explaining the Gospel

ricebroocks

Today I wanted to share some comments from others about another key purpose we had in writing Hope Reborn. Over the years at Jubilee we have come to realize that the single best evangelistic resource a church has is people who have themselves encountered Jesus and been changed by him. Often such people are enthusiastic in sharing their faith with others, and at a minimum inviting them to church, small group, or perhaps an Alpha Course.Our hope is that even Christians who have been around … [Read more...]

Mark Driscoll encourages us to point people to Jesus

HOPEREBORN_markdriscoll

The Gospel itself is more scandalous than any of the recent controversies that have embroiled Mark Driscoll.The Gospel is the scandal that God loves sinners like you and me.The Gospel is the scandal that he keeps loving us when we fall.The Gospel is the scandal that no matter how low you fall, Jesus can get under you and lift you up.The Gospel is the good news that God never gives up on you.As we learnt from Ann Voskamp, we should never get over the Gospel.Many religious … [Read more...]

For the next few days I am going to share some things that others have made about my new book Hope Reborn, and use them to help explain why I am so excited about the book, which is just days away now from general release in the UK and USA.I will begin with Ann Voskamp who is one of my heroes. I love everything that she stands for, and she immediately got to the heart of what we were trying to achieve with the book.One of the risks with our book is that Christians may see the … [Read more...]

This is my story – Part Ten: The story behind Hope Reborn

It was Sunday October 14th, 2012. I was happy. My eldest daughter was being baptized that day. I was so thrilled for that, and so glad to be part of Jubilee Church that day. I was listening to my pastor, Tope Koleoso, preaching on the Pharisee and the Prostitute. Suddenly, out of the blue it hit me, “this needs to be a book” and not just that sermon, although it became the first chapter, but other things we had been teaching at Jubilee Church for years.I wrote an outline right there and then … [Read more...]

LIVE TV DEBATE: Does Modern day prophecy automatically weaken Sola Scriptura?

revdebate

My live TV debate vs Pastor Mark Fitzpatrick, a cessationist, is now available to view online at Part One and Part Two.My opponent argued that in 1 Corinthians 13 Paul meant that gifts will cease when the Bible was complete. I disagreed, saying they continue until Jesus returns.We both agreed with the concept of Sola Scriptura, in other words the sufficiency and finality of revelation found in the Bible and point to 2 Timothy 3:15-17: The sacred writings, which are able to make you wise … [Read more...]

The danger of stressing only God’s love or his wrath

Just a few bullet point thoughts for a Sunday afternoon for you:Those who stress only God's love will always become liberals. Those who stress only His wrath will be angry, legalistic, fundamentalists. If you stress only God's love will relate to him as a genial Father Christmas. If only his wrath you will fear him as an angry headmaster. When you see love and wrath together you will rejoice with trembling, love God but fear him, and take refuge in him to escape his justice. The Cross … [Read more...]

A Wedding Sermon

Adrian and Andrée Warnock (July 1995)

Pastors often find that special occasion sermons are harder to write and deliver than regular ones. I know that I was much more nervous myself about preaching for the marriage of a couple in our church last week than I am about preaching on Sundays. So, here is a set of notes on a passage that is sometimes reached for at a time like this. Hopefully if you are struggling for an idea for a wedding sermon yourself, this may spark some thoughts in you.On the third day there was a wedding at … [Read more...]
