Since the time I first arrived at the church here in Sedro Woolley I have longed to do one thing faithfully and continually––preach Christ (1 Corinthians 1:18, 23).
I was clear and have never wavered that the method in which I believed we must do this is what is commonly called expository preaching.
This is a method that has been carried down through history and it has one main goal that stands apart from other methods and preaching.
No one doubts this is an interesting time in our world. I don't think anyone is arguing about the fact that we are very divided in many ways, but something that has been very interesting to me, and even troubled me, are the amount of Christians that I hear that are quick to give their thoughts or focuses to the many conspiracies and issues of our day.
When we more quickly share the latest gossip or inside scoop on the issues of America on our social media feeds than we share the gospel, then something is clearly wrong in our thinking and our worldview.
