  • Comment to those looking at my sermons: When I study I use the tools God gave me, first and foremost being the Bible itself. If anything I write feels right to someone who wishes to use it, by all means do so. I'm not convinced I have any right to copyright any inspiration or insight God may have given me. I use thoughts and illustrations passed on to me by other pastors, including from Sermon Central and lay no claim on any of my messages. I rely 1st on the Holy Spirit & thank God for all others who inspire me with a thought or text.
