My calling from God, as I understood it, was not to preach, but to teach. Some would say there isn’t much difference, and in my case, that is likely true. Those who analyze sermons would probably describe my sermons as teaching messages, but I think that is acceptable. I have come to believe that whether a person’s Christian vocation is to preach or to teach, both activities, at their root, are calls to make known the message of God as revealed in Scripture. While I have never sought the opportunity to proclaim the Word of God in sermonic form, some occasions have sought me, and the sermons included here are the result.
