Say it Again! Preaching the Good News of Easter

Preaching on the Resurrection of Jesus with conviction.
Say it Again! Preaching the Good News of Easter

Available on:

How can you preach the good news of Easter? Bishop Timothy Clarke, Senior Pastor at First Church of God in Ohio, says you don’t have to make the Easter message relevant for people. It’s already relevant, because it’s in the Word of God.

He drew attention to Isaiah 40:8 (ESV) “The grass withers, the flower fades and the word of the Lord stands forever.”

In this episode, they discuss everything from Chicago steakhouses, to preaching failures, to how the resurrection narrative stands the test of time. Bishop Clarke offers three specific words of advice for preachers:

  • Focus on your relationship with God.
  • Make your family a priority.
  • Find your voice, vocation, and vision.

He also said “acquaint yourself with the history of the church.” You can also watch Bishop Clarke’s sermons on YouTube.
