Comment to those looking at my sermons: It is my desire that anything GOD has impressed upon me will also bless you and your congregation. Once upon a time, I would never have dreamed of sharing---nor using---a sermon, until I woke up and realized that only GOD has a copyright on His Word, and He’s been sharing it for years. If you can use any of the material that I have contributed, please feel free to do so, and I’d love to hear from you.
Sermon or series that made a difference: "Invitation To The Supernatural" June 1982, Rev. Jeff Arnold, Gainesville, FL
I’m sure there were others, but that one particular message, at age 19, forever impacted my life and challenged me to leave the ordinary things behind me and dare to walk in the Spirit.
What my parents think of my sermons: My dad has been preaching for as long as I can remember; he has paid me the ultimate compliment by stating that he thinks I’m a better preacher than he is. My mother has always told me, "You did a great job...just don’t believe it yourself!" This helps to keep me humble.
What my spouse (really) thinks of my sermons: Believe it or not, she actually prefers my teaching style to my preaching style. I believe it has more to do with the intensity of my preaching (I still get very emotionally charged at times), whereas she has told me on numerous occasions that I have the ability (to God be all glory) to "keep people on the edge of their seats" when I’m teaching.
Books that have had an impact: The Bible.
If I could Preach one more time, I would say...: It’s the old rugged Cross that makes the difference.
What I want on my tombstone: He Walked With God...And God Took Him.
