Sermon or series that made a difference: All the different aspects of God’s Grace.
One of my favorite illustrations: There is an ocean of God’s grace out there but most of us only run around in the surf getting our feet wet and think we’re swiming in God’s Grace. Most of the time we limit grace to salvation but that is only the begining of grace for the Christian. The ocean of God’s Grace is miles deep and most of us rarely get above our ankles in it.

What my spouse (really) thinks of my sermons: She rates them on a scale from one to ten. I’ve only ever gotten one Ten.
