Sermons, Blogs and Audio files

 

I know some people who consider looking at, let alone using a sermon composed by another pastor, to be almost on the same level "cheating. Almost like looking off another student's exam paper.

The truth is that it in many ways it is no different than reading through a bible commentary. While a pastor is to be in the study of the word, another pastors’ sermon can add dimension to a sermon. Sermon notes can offer additional insights, examples, thoughts and additional scripture on a topic.

Also, especially for bi-vocational pastors, time can be tight. When a pastor gets hit with a family emergency, several hospital visits and a funeral, especially all in the same week, things can get very hectic. I tried to plan sermons in advance, but that just doesn’t always work out.

Understand, no pastor should just download a sermon from the internet and just read it to his congregation. They need to be a Berean (Acts 17:10:11), making sure that any information they obtain is correct and God Honoring. They also need to make the sermon "theirs". By this, I mean the pastor need to make the sermon relevant to their church. They need to feel confident that this message is what the Holy Spirit wants delivered. They need to have a passion for the sermon they give.

Now I'm not sure why anyone would want to use my sermons, but if you can find a use for any of my materials (sermon notes, blog thoughts or audio files), help yourself. The only stipulation is that you use them in the spirit of 1st Corinthians 10:31: Whether therefore you eat, or drink, or whatsoever you do, do all to the glory of God.
