I’m preparing a sermon for Basileia about what it means to preach the gospel to ourselves. As part of my prep, I’ve been mining the resources at the Resurgence, and I’ve come across two sermons that have helped me tremendously. These two sermons are actually not about preaching the gospel to yourself, but actually help answer the question, “What is the Gospel?” That topic is actually what I preached on this past weekend, and now I wish I had heard these sermons before I preached. But oh well, they’re awesome anyway.
One of my goals this year it to try and listen / read widely to different preachers within the evangelical landscape. I feel this will help sharpen my own preaching skills, and help me find my own voice. So far I’m not doing that great (listening wise), but I did want to pass on a sermon series that has recently been very helpful to me.

This is a recent sermon I preached at 24church about service & greatness in the kingdom of God. One of the insights that I received from the Holy Spirit while studying this text is still amazing to me. God is good.
