How you can help transform others through love

July 31, 2013

So, being affectionately desirous of you, we were ready to share with you not only the gospel of God but also our own selves, because you had become very dear to us.

1 Thessalonians 2:8

I remember when I was a young preacher and was getting my start preaching revivals in little churches out in West Texas. There was one little town where I preached and I was staying with one of the church members. When I woke up one morning, he was sitting at the kitchen table and asked me what I wanted for breakfast.

“No thanks,” I said, “I never eat before I preach because it fills me up and slows me down.” Not only that, I didn’t have time to sit and talk over breakfast because I had to prepare for my sermon. So we went to the service, I preached, and we were headed back to his place after church. He was really quiet, so I asked him, “What did you think of the sermon?”

“Preacher,” the man said, “You really wanna know?” I said, “Yes, of course.” He just looked at me and said, “You shoulda eaten.”

That day, I learned a powerful lesson. Not just that I needed to eat before I preached, but that connecting with people is just as important as sharing God’s truth with them. So don’t just look at people as a project. Spend time with them and love them. When you do, you’ll love the lost into the Kingdom and the saved into a greater likeness of Christ!

HELP OTHERS BE TRANFORMED INTO CHRISTLIKENESS BY BOTH SPENDING TIME WITH THEM AND SHARING GOD’S TRUTH!

Get the best from 2012 to be your best in 2013


Dear Friend,

While many pastors shy away from addressing controversial issues, I sincerely believe you need to hear straight, “bulls-eye” biblical teaching on many of today’s hot topics. Not only to grow in your faith as a believer, but to give winsome, compassionate answers to the hard questions our culture is asking.

That’s why I want to send you a special new resource today – my CD series called The Best of 2012.

This series contains 10 of my most popular and compelling messages from 2012, and it’s a resource that’s sure to help you in 2013 because it includes messages such as, “Are All Religions the Same?”, “Lessons on Leadership,” and “What Is a Christian?”

The Best of 2012 is my gift to thank you for your donation to help PowerPoint continue to proclaim God’s Word and truth ’til the whole world hears. So please request your copy when you give today.

Thank you!
