Pastor Alex Montoya has been instrumental in God shaping how I preach and also with wisdom concerning pastoral ministry.  He’s to me the Hispanic Charles Spurgeon and I lament that he’s retired from teaching in seminary.

Last week he’s recently taught for a Seminary Winterim session on the passion of preaching.  In a one week intensive course he taught a future generation of those entering ministry on homiletic (how to preach).

I thought I share them with viewers to help preachers and those who are teachers.

Here are the videos:

Sometimes people think of Expository Preaching as preaching from the Word of God that is “boring” because it is so heavily based upon the Word of God.  I disagree.  I think there is a difference between exegetical data dumping and expository preaching.

What is something helpful and practical that can help those teaching the Word of God not end up just go on like a run-on vocal Bible commentary?

As we approach the 500th Anniversary of the Reformation I thought it would be timely to also share this book review of a biography of an important Reformed preacher in Protestant history: George Whitefield.

Many years ago I heard John MacArthur say that when he’s on vacation he often read an encouraging Christian biography.  I started reading this biography on the famous George Whitefield while on a short family vacation and I’m glad I read it since it was encouraging and spiritually edifying.  This book is part of “A Long Line of Godly Men Profile” series published by Reformation Trust Publishing and like the other two works in this series that I read this particular volume did not disappoint.

I got to admit I’m not much of a music guy.  Sadly I don’t know the words to most of my favorite hymns.  A few weeks ago I preached at another church and they sand this song and it really ministered to me right before I got up to the pulpit.

I enjoyed the video I linked because its congregational singing though of course its not just a church but a conference for the video.

Here’s the lyrics and may it minister to other preachers, teachers and believers!

It’s Sunday!  I know teaching, preaching and ministering is not always easy.  Here is another short post providing you with the motivation from the Word of God for preachers before you enter your pulpit and teachers before you go in to instruct your class.

Today’s post comes from 1 Timothy 4:14:

It’s Sunday Morning.  I know sometimes ministry is not easy.  So here’s another little motivation from the Word of God for preachers before you enter your pulpit and teachers before you go in to instruct your class.

1 Timothy 2:5-7 states:

For there is one God, and one mediator also between God and men, the man Christ Jesus, 6 who gave Himself as a ransom for all, the testimony given at the proper time. 7 For this I was appointed a preacher and an apostle (I am telling the truth, I am not lying) as a teacher of the Gentiles in faith and truth.

Here’s a question for mediation based upon the passage:

It’s Sunday Morning.  Here’s a little motivation for preachers before you enter your pulpit from the Word of God.

 

1 Timothy 5:17-19 states

 The elders who rule well are to be considered worthy of double honor, especially those who work hard at preaching and teaching. 18 For the Scripture says, “You shall not muzzle the ox while he is threshing,” and “The laborer is worthy of his wages.” 19 Do not receive an accusation against an elder except on the basis of two or three witnesses.

Note in verse 17 that Paul’s intention in writing this is so that those who serve in the church as Elders/Pastors to “work hard at preaching and teaching.”  Verse 18 tips us that he’s going to give us the reasons for this with the use of the word “for” which shows the motivation.  I want to look at one of the motivation for this Sunday and Lord willing another next Sunday.
