Here are some of his sermon jams:

The Gospel's Power & Message

 

[Summary] This author is widely known for his Gospel preaching.  In this book, he did not cease to amaze with his engagement of critical texts concerning the Gospel.  The book comprises of three foundational parts: “An Apostolic Introduction,” “The Power of God for Salvation,” and “The Acropolis of the Christian Faith.”  Each breakdown below is worthy to be studied deeply and worthy to be used in Gospel exposition.

  • PART ONE: AN APOSTOLIC INTRODUCTION
    • A Gospel to Know and Make Known
    • A Gospel to be Received
    • A Gospel by Which We Are Saved
    • A Gospel of First Importance
    • A Gospel Handed Down and Delivered
  • PART TWO: THE POWER OF GOD FOR SALVATION
    • The Gospel
    • A Scandalous Gospel
    • A Powerful Gospel
    • A Gospel for All Who Believe
  • PART THREE: THE ACROPOLIS
    • Making Much of Sin
    • Making Much of God
    • Sinners One and All
    • Sinners Falling Short
    • Sinners Through and Through
    • Righteous Indignation
    • Holy War
    • A Most Costly Gift
    • The Divine Dilemma
    • A Qualified Redeemer
    • The Cross Of Jesus Christ
    • The Vindication of God
    • The Resurrection of Jesus Christ
    • The Foundation of Faith in the Resurrection
    • Christ’s Ascension as the High Priest of His People
    • Christ’s Ascension as the Lord of All
    • Christ’s Ascension as the Judge of All

[Analysis] One of greatest travesties in this generation is the saints’ neglect of the Gospel.  From this neglect, as the author points out, maladies and false teaching spring forth.  Often many pulpits across America ignore the major themes that make up the foundational elements, fabric, and the theme of the Gospel.  Themes such as the justice of God, holiness, the blood atonement, the depravity of man, lie on the table with dust on it.  To ignore these themes is to prevent people from seeing the full and glorious beauty of the Gospel of grace.  Sinners need to hear the bad news before they can appreciate the good news.  To ignore the holiness and justice of God, and the depravity of man, is to make the Gospel more palatable to the unbeliever who is blinded by sin.

It is no wonder that when the Gospel is stripped from its major themes concerning God and man, many are not offended by the message and many are not truly converted.  The messenger commits this crime against God for the sake of friendship, and for the sake of the idolatry of sentimentalism.  When human revisionism of the Gospel takes place, many others who are in tuned with the itchy ear epidemic and the idolatry of sentimentalism will cause them to cut corners concerning truth.  As a result, the Gospel will not be a sharp blade that will pierce the heart.  To take away the the major themes as mentioned above, is to ignore the plight of sinners.  And to ignore the plight of sinners is in reality to be unloving and unkind to not only God but humanity too. Yesterday, I had the opportunity to witness to a friend who is an atheist.  I presented him some of the major themes of the Gospel that did not subtract the holiness and justice of God.  He was offended because I did not wrap the message the way he envisioned.  But this is not about us.  This is about the glory of God.  The Gospel is about God and His glory.  And it must start there.

This book does a great job in dealing with the major themes in order that the Gospel is presented with clarity.  The breakdown of the Gospel’s terminology will also help explain in more depth concerning the terms that require more explanation.  I recommend this book to all believers and for those who have a desire to do evangelism here and abroad.

Paul Washer

What can I say about Paul Washer? For those of you who are not familiar with him, he is married to his wife Charo and they both have three children: Ian, Evan, and Rowan.  Paul Washer is also a graduate of Southwestern Theological Seminary, a missionary at Peru for 10 years, a current laborer at HeartCry Missionary Society, and a itinerant preacher.  It seems that people’s awareness of him can be traced to his well-known “Shocking Youth Message” that now has over 1 million views on YouTube (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cncEhCvrVgQ).  It was that message that catapulted him to the spotlight.

To those who have listened to him, it appears that he is either a stench of death to some or a sweet smelling aroma.  As for me, he is a sweet smelling aroma.  His gospel-centered messages have impacted me during my young life as a Christian and continues to do so.  We need more men like him, not charlatans from that reality show called “Preachers of L.A.”  They are the contradiction/opposite to biblical leaders.  Biblical leaders are best described in 1 Timothy 3:1-7 and Titus 1:5-9.

Not too long ago, this past Thursday, Brother Paul visited The Master’s Seminary.  As my friend and I decided to make a trip there, we were blessed to listened to a message from Romans 12:1-2.  We were deeply edified and convicted by the message.  His message that was delivered with passion, integrity, sincerity, love, and conviction was an encouragement to many of us.   After the message, my friend and I had the opportunity to speak to him personally.  And as contrary to what some may think about him, I have had the opportunity to meet him twice in person.  What I can say is that he was down-to-earth and very approachable.  What I appreciated about this latest personal meeting with him was his encouragement to me and a few guys concerning the importance of prayer.  He even shared tips with us in terms of  a few ways to have an effective prayer life.  I was convicted by it because I need to excel still more in my communion time via prayer with my precious Lord and Savior.  May God help us to be the saints that God desires us to be!  At any rate,  I hope this message encourages you.  Until then, here is a passage from Romans 12:1-2, “Therefore I urge you, brethren, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies a living and holy sacrifice, acceptable to God, which is your spiritual service of worship. 2And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, so that you may prove what the will of God is, that which is good and acceptable and perfect” (NASB).
