James Meeks at #Exponential
Speaking about preaching at Exponential: If this guy made it, I can make it too.
In a recent survey, we were horrible in most areas. We received highest marks on getting results.
Preaching the announcements-whatever you want them to do or know.
Sermon is most powerful tool God has given to the pastor.
Mark 2-Four men brought their friend to Jesus-Sermon he entitled "A Desperate Disciple"
We believe Jesus is the answer. So, we need to get our friends to Jesus.
Matthew 8:14-Desperate People Serve
When Jesus touches you and you are delivered, you start serving.
Whatever you want people to do, make it a sermon. Preach the announcements.
Believe in the power of the gospel. Preaching the announcements must be biblically based.
Using your preaching time wisely.
