For crying out loud, grow up!

Average Rating: Not rated  [see ratings/reviews]

I'm happy to introduce our newest preacher—Dr. Ralph West from Church Without Walls in Houston, Texas. If you aren't familiar with Dr. West, I'm confident you'll love his blend of exegesis, storytelling, humor, and gut-level honest applications of the text. In this week's featured sermon—"Grow Up!"—I appreciated his sound and simple preaching outline for Ephesians 4:11-16—(1) the impediments to growth, (2) the environment for growth, (3) the thumbprint for growth. It's a great resource for forming your own ideas on helping people grow in Christ.

This week we also feature:

In Christ,

P.S. "Regardless of what you've been facing or what you will face next week, let your sermon be a time of renewal. Just stand in the pulpit and let God use you for that moment." Rev. Harry S. Wright (from a recent interview with Rev. Lawrence Aker III).

Matt Woodley serves as the Editor for PreachingToday.com and the Pastor of Compassion Ministries at Church of the Resurrection in Wheaton, Illinois. He is also the author of God With Us: The Gospel of Matthew (IVP).
