The Abundance of Giving – John MacArthur argues that of all the things we look forward to when coming to church, giving should be near the top of the list.

Evangelism as a Mom – This article is really encouraging. A mother of young children shares how she learned to share the gospel. Sometimes it’s as simple as just making the opportunities; people may be more eager to hear the gospel than we imagine.

Like Naughty Kids – Tullian shares an interesting quote on how pastors should be like naughty kids. “They ought to be naughty enough to tiptoe up on dozing congregations, steal their bottles of religion pills…and flush them all down the drain.”

The Difference a Decade Makes – Al Mohler serves as a guest voice for the Washington Post and marvels at the difference a decade makes when it comes to moral decline.

    A Difference-Making Ministry for Any Christian

    The experience of preaching is very different from the front than from the back, when facing the congregation than when facing the preacher. The congregation faces one man who is doing his utmost to be engaging, to hold their attention, and to apply truths that will impact their hearts and transform their lives.
