The Prayer-Minder: A Great Tool to Really Help Your Prayer Life

If you were asked to describe your prayer life,what would you say? Would you use words like inconsistent, shallow, repetitive, forgetful, lacking time, or overwhelming?”

These very words have described my prayer life from time to time.

Heaven, Hell, Faith and Speed His Coming!

When is the last time you heard a sermon on hell or the second coming of Christ? What will heaven be like and will the lost suffer eternal torment? What faith do I need for today? What could God be waiting for to end the world?

The Central Ministry Center of the Chicago Church of Christ presented a powerful set of sermons this summer on Heaven, Hell, Faith and the Speed His Coming. You can download, listen and share them for your quiet times, car rides, exercise inspiration, etc.

"Speed His Coming" was originally delivered at the 1988 Midwest Evangelism Seminar in Chicago the first time God filled the Medinah Auditorium with 4,000 people. It has been my most requested and most commented on sermon. The newest version is an update for our churches today.

Quiet Time: "Making the Most of My Mist"

I am fascinated with time. Not simply in the sense that there never seems to be enough of it, but rather the means of leveraging its properties. I am fascinated that we only ever have this one point in time with which to do anything. It’s as if the eternal nature of our souls, while suspended in these earthly bodies must focus the entire singularity of eternity along this thin rail we call time, from the first heartbeat to the last.

Clear, Coherent, Christ-Centered Communication - An Illustration

When we share the gospel, we want it to be as clear and simple as possible. Paul asked people to pray for him in Colossians 4:4 in his evangelism : "Pray that I may proclaim it clearly as I should."
