The Challenge of Faith (Gen. 22:1-5)

Faith is a challenge. God never asks for that which means little to us. Invariably, it's something we've worked hard for or waited a long time for; something-or someone-we're thoroughly invested in. Not only that, it's something God Himself has given us. According to this sermon on faith, it is only when we understand that God, the Giver, can be thoroughly trusted, that we are freed to give back to him.

Lectures in Preaching

If I didn't believe that the Holy Spirit worked through preaching, not just saying what God wants said, but mysteriously invoking the presence of God, I'd quit preaching and go write comic books.
