Comment to those looking at my sermons: My prayer is that each sermon that you read will penetrate to your heart. As a result, I pray that you will make the needed change(s) in your life.
One of my favorite illustrations: A few years ago, I produced a drama for children to be presented during our conference’s revival meetings. In one particular scene, after Jesus gave the "Sermon on the Mount", the children were allowed to shake hands with Jesus as they left the staging area. At times, Jesus would lay his hands on the children’s head and would say "Bless you". Later, at the end of the evening, my 4 year old nephew went running to grandma to tell her about what had happened that night. He said, "Grandma, Jesus touched me tonight and said, ’Bless you my son!’".
This is the case of every born again believer, there are times in our lives that Jesus places His hand upon us and simply says, "Bless you my child!"

If I could Preach one more time, I would say...: Jesus died for you. He wants you to live with Him in Heaven. Repent of your sin today!
