Whenever I put together a teaching I have two goals. First, of course, is that my listeners will grow in their knowledge of the Bible and through that find their relationship with God growing as well. If that happens for us when we listen to good, Spirit-led teaching, we will find the turmoil of our lives calming down and sins that have become embedded in our basic nature will begin to come loose, setting us free. Second, I try to issue a challenge in the hope that every person listening will, in some way apply the teaching to his or her life.

Sometimes dealing with crisis involves taking stock of the worst case scenario. This is a PDF of a sermon from my crisis series. If I ever find a tape of that sermon I'll post it here. In the meantime, read on...!
