Spiritual Gifts

Let’s Go Fishing

Matthew 4:19 – July 1, 1990

Somewhere in my past I heard the story about a man who was a phenomenal fisherman. He was so good that his fame spread far and wide. When everyone else was catching two or three fish a day he would come back with two or three hundred. Eventually the local game warden decided to investigate […]

The Shepherd’s Gift

Ephesians 4:11 – June 24, 1990

About the time I graduated from seminary in 1978, a leading Christian magazine published an article entitled, “Things They Didn’t Tell You at Your Seminary Graduation.” It is subtitled, “Some aphorisms for the brand-new pastor.” I cut it out and saved it because at that time I was most definitely a brand-new pastor. Here are […]

Are We a Non-Prophet Ministry?

I Corinthians 14:29-33 – June 17, 1990

What image comes into your mind when you hear the word prophet? If you are like most people, several images may flash across your mental screen. You may think of a white haired old man in a prison cell on an island in the middle of the ocean. With wrinkled face and a long white […]

Confessions of a Xenophiliac

I Peter 4:9-10 – June 10, 1990

They say that true confession is good for the soul, and in that spirit, I want to begin my sermon with a simple confession. Although I am preaching a series of sermons on spiritual gifts, I am not entirely sure that what I am preaching about this morning actually is a spiritual gift. I think […]

The Barnabas Factor

Romans 12:8 – June 3, 1990

If someone were to give you a name indicative of your personality, what would it be? What nickname or adjective would sum up who you really are? We do that sort of thing all the time. For instance, if I mention Honest Abe, you immediately know that I am talking about Abraham Lincoln. If we […]

How to Spot Counterfeit Christianity

I Corinthians 12:10 – May 27, 1990

I’d like to begin by quoting from an article published in 1988 in Celebrity magazine. The article is entitled, “The Cult Rage Possesses the Stars,” and is subtitled “Shirley Maclaine, Linda Evans and Sharon Gless believe in spirits beyond the grave—Do you?” In the article we are told many interesting facts about our favorite stars. […]

What Moves Your Mountain?

Romans 12:8: I Corinthians 12:9 – May 20, 1990

I’m sure you’ve heard this definition of a football game: It’s an event where 50,000 people who desperately need exercise sit in the stands watching 22 men on the field who desperately need rest. Unfortunately, that definition fits more than a football game. It also fit the typical 20th-century American church. In the average congregation, […]

Calling All Servants

Romans 12:8; I Corinthians 12:28 – May 13, 1990

The name Lee Roberson is perhaps only vaguely familiar to most of you. But if you lived in the Chattanooga area, you would certainly recognize the name. In 1942 he came to the Highland Park Baptist Church in Chattanooga as its new pastor. At the time the church was small, struggling, and virtually unknown. When […]

Martha’s Vineyard

I Corinthians 12:28; Romans 12:7 – April 29, 1990

I first met Bill Petch twelve years ago this summer. I was fresh out of seminary and starting my first pastorate. It happened that my church was like most churches pastored by men right out of seminary—small and struggling. When I arrived on the scene, there were about 50 people left in a church built […]

My Favorite Teacher

Romans 12:7; I Corinthians 12:28; Ephesians 4:11 – April 22, 1990

It’s not hard for me to remember my favorite teacher. I first met her on a bright September morning in 1962. Her name was Mrs. Witt. We were her new fifth-grade class. She was a big, strong woman, which meant she could take care of us without any trouble. To me she looked like she […]

The Gift that Never Grows Old

Romans 12:8 – April 8, 1990

Some of you have heard this story, but it bears repeating. About 16 years ago some researchers decided to find out if seminarians really were Good Samaritans. In order to conduct their experiment, they enlisted 40 volun-teers from a major American seminary. They divided the volunteers into two groups of 20 each and told them […]

Unwrapping Your Spiritual Gifts

Various – April 1, 1990

The name Peter Drucker will be familiar to you if you are a student of business or economics. To put it simply, he is one of the great minds of the 20th century. His writings include Managing for Results, The New Society, The Effective Executive, and America’s Next Twenty Years. For over a generation he […]
