Comment to those looking at my sermons: I hope God speaks to you and inspires you with these few thoughts He gave to me. Use them for God’s glory, and may they bring forth fruit unto His Kingdom. God Bless You! If you would like to contact me, write to Keith Linkous, 5507 Stafford Drive, Dublin, VA 24084 / firstname.lastname@example.org - I would love to hear from you!
Family: Married to Winona Linkous, my beautiful and wonderfully supportive wife of 19 years.
Best advice given to me about preaching: Preach God’s Word without fear and without favor. Preach not only the Word OF God, but the Word FROM God. Seek Him for something fresh. We live by the "proceeding Word of God" (Matt. 4:4). That means that which God is saying, not just what He has said. Preach that proceeding Word, relying on the power of God’s Spirit to make it effective and fruitful.
Books that have had an impact: The Bible has made the greatest impact on my life. I once told our church: "If I underlined all the good verses in my Bible, the entire Bible would probably be underlined. It’s all good."
Someone has said, "The Word is not like a carpenter’s shop, with useless chips laying around. It is more like a goldsmith’s shop, where even the dust is precious." That’s my heart exactly.
Hobbies: Reading, Playing Basketball, Playing Music
If I could Preach one more time, I would say...: Give God your everything, your all, and hold nothing back. As someone once said, "The world has yet to see what God could do with just one soul completely surrendered to Him!"
What I want on my tombstone: He served God. He served others. He served his purpose.
