World’s #1 Lesson Writer

Most Bible Study lessons are written by people who do something else as their primary occupation. They are pastors who write Bible Study lessons, or professors at Bible colleges that write Bible Study lessons, or housewives that write Bible Study lessons on the side. In contrast, I have devoted most of my adult life to Bible Study […]

What does it mean to be saved–really

The best illustration of what it means to be saved that I have ever heard came from a pastor in a small church in New England. His name was George Thomas. George waited until the service had started before he burst through the back doors with an old, rusty, wire bird cage. He set it […]

Has salvation lost its pizzazz?

The word “salvation” has lost its pizzazz for some of us. We have heard it so many times that we find ourselves looking at our watches when we hear the word. “Salvation” basically means to deliver or rescue. It means to get out of trouble. It was often used in a non-theological sense in the […]

Are sermon-based groups the answer?

Pastor Larry Osborn champions sermon-based groups in this excellent book, Sticky Church. Groups are encouraged to get together and talk about the pastor. You might be thinking, “They do that at my church already!” In this case, what they mean is they encourage people to talk about how to apply the pastor’s sermons to their […]

Rooted starts with being planted

Many don’t get rooted because they were never planted. Jesus taught many will be surprised on the judgment day: Many will say to Me in that day, ‘Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Your name, cast out demons in Your name, and done many wonders in Your name?’ And then I will declare to […]

How God changes us

The Greek word translated transformed in Romans 12:2 is metamorphóō. We get our word metamorphosis from this word. There is an interesting contrast between change that starts on the outside—conformed, and change that starts on the inside—transformed. J.B. Phillips’ paraphrase of this verse accurately describes change that starts on the outside, “Don’t let the world […]
