On occasion I'm asked about the mechanics of my preaching preparation. So for those interested, this is what my usual week looks like, and the tools I most often turn to.
Our history—our journey—will lead us to one of two places. Either we will be filled with pride over what we’ve accomplished and who we’ve become, or we will be filled with shame over our failure to succeed and what we’ve done. But the gospel destroys both those positions. Both pride and shame are uprooted and burnt in the blazing light of the glory of Jesus.
