TODAY’S SERMON: “What It Means To Trust In God” (Psalm 27)
It’s the Lord’s Day!
Today, I plan to end our 2014 Summer Psalm Series at the Shiloh Church with a message from Psalm 27, entitled, “What it Means to Trust in God.” The point of the message is that God is worthy of your trust in every situation. Specifically, you can trust God in the good days (27:1-6) and in the bad days (27:7-14).
The Lord is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? The Lord is the stronghold of my life; of whom shall I be afraid? – Psalm 27:1 (ESV)
Join us for worship at the Shiloh Church at 7:45 or 10:30 AM (EST). Both services will be live streamed.

Today’s Sermon: “Celebrating the Majesty of God” (Psalm 8)
It’s the Lord’s Day!
Today, at the Shiloh Metropolitan Baptist Church, I plan to continue our Summer Psalm Series with a message from Psalm 8, entitled, “Celebrating the Majesty of God.” The message of this brief but beautiful psalm is that all of creation is a call to worship the greatness and goodness of God.
O Lord, our Lord, how majestic is your name in all the earth! - Psalm 8:1a, 9 (ESV)
Thanks for reading my blog. Here are my Saturday Shout-Outs for this week. A big shout-out to the Shiloh Church staff and volunteers for serving our children this week during the 2014 Vacation Bible School. You make it happen! Shout-out to Pastor Terrance Floyd and the Mt. Gilead Baptist Church of Wichita, KA. It was a […]
I believe expository preaching is the most faithful way to preach and teach the word of God. Expository preaching is that preaching that explains what the text of scripture means by what it says. It makes the God-intended meaning of the text the primary message of the sermon or lesson. Bible exposition lets the word […]
This is Episode #006 of The On Preaching Podcast, the podcast dedicated to helping you preach faithfully, clearly, and better. In this episode, we will talk about developing Sermons Skeletons.

A Morning Prayer by John R.W. Stott
Good morning heavenly Father, good morning Lord Jesus, good morning Holy Spirit. Heavenly Father, I worship you as the Creator and Sustainer of the universe. Lord Jesus, I worship you, Savior and Lord of the world. Holy Spirit I worship you, Sanctifier of the people of God. Glory to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit. Heavenly Father, I pray that I may live this day in your presence and please you more and more. Lord Jesus, I pray that this day I may take up my cross and follow you. Holy Spirit, I pray that this day you will fill me with yourself and cause your fruit to ripen in my life: love, joy peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control. Holy, blessed, and glorious Trinity, three Persons in one God, have mercy upon me. Amen.
