I preached my first sermon at Grace church today, entitled “Gospel Power” (Rom. 1.16-17), which I wish to dedicate to the memory of the 5 missionaries – Jim Elliot, Pete Fleming, Ed McCully, Nate Saint, & Roger Youderian – who 66 years ago this weekend, on 8 Jan. 1956, were martyred in Ecuador, killed by the Huaorani Indians.

He is no fool who gives what he cannot keep to gain that which he cannot lose.

Key points:

  1. The gospel is … the power of God.
  2. The gospel is … for salvation.
  3. The gospel is … to everyone who believes.


  • Be unashamed
  • Live out the gospel
  • Be strong & courageous

Main idea – The church/Christian life is all about the gospel; the gospel is all about Jesus.

The Emotionally Healthy Leader Podcast | How to Teach & Preach from the Inside Out


  1. Am I preaching for Jesus out of a life of being with Jesus? (who we are is more important than what we say)
  2. Am I present to myself & to people in the room? (see & love them)
  3. Am I allowing the text to intersect with my family of origin & culture?
  4. Am I preaching out of vulnerability & weakness? (need time to let text go into & break you)
  5. Am I allowing the text to transform me?
  6. Am I connecting the message to people’s long-term formation?

Tribute to John Stott

Lausanne Global Executive Director/CEO Michael Oh reflects on John Stott’s legacy on the centennial of his birth (20 Apr, 1921). Among his many key contributions to Christian theology, the church and missions, what stands out for me is his role in the birthing of the Lausanne Covenant and Movement in 1974, and his related book Christian Mission in the Modern World (1975), which has since been updated and expanded by Chris Wright on its 40th anniversary.

No other gods | Exodus 7-11

No other gods (Ex. 7.14-11.10)

That you may know that:

  1. God is significant (knowledge, love).
  2. God is supreme (power).
  3. God is sovereign (in control).

But I have raised you up for this very purpose, that I might show you My power and that My name might be proclaimed in all the earth. (Ex. 9.16)
