I was invited to Hagerman Christian Center (pictured below) to preach and present Grats Ministry Coaching to a gathering of pastors. The Lord helped me sermonize the Grats ministry coaching experience.
Before you listen to the sermon below, let me leave you with this quote from J.B. Phillips (written in the introduction to his New Testament translation):
"The greatest difference between present-day Christianity and that of which we read in these letters is that to us it is primarily a performance; to them it was real experience. We are apt to reduce the Christian religion to a code or, at best, a rule of heart and life. Perhaps if we believed what they believed, we could achieve what they achieved."
One final note: Though I am a Pentecostal minister and though this sermon was delivered to a Pentecostal crowd, please understand that I coach pastors and missionaries (and speak/preach at their events) of all Christian denominations.
