MINISTRY AND BUSINESS

Saturday, July 2nd, 2016

YOUNG PASTORS DON’T UNDERSTAND THE MINISTRY Ken Blue “Wherefore, brethren, look ye out among you seven men of honest report, full of the Holy Ghost and wisdom, whom we may appoint over this business.  But we will give ourselves continually to prayer, and to the ministry of the word.” Acts 6:3-4. I went to Bible College […]

CONDITIONED REFLEX

Sunday, June 19th, 2016

CONDITIONED TO RESPOND ON CUE? By Ken Blue If you are observant, you will notice that when you hear one person in church cough, others will cough also. Likewise, if one person gets up to go to the bathroom, others feel the same urge. You will notice that, many times, when you scratch your nose […]

COULD IT BE YOUR PREACHING

Saturday, February 13th, 2016

Change Your Preaching A young pastor lamented to me that his church was not growing no matter what he did. I ask him, “What kind of sermons do you preach?” He said, “I rip their face off.” I said, “Can’t you just see this man at work on Monday, and someone asks, ‘what happened to […]

TOPICS FOR THOSE WHO CAN’T PREACH THE BIBLE

Thursday, April 22nd, 2010

PREACHING TOPICS THAT DEFY RIGHT DIVISION By Ken Blue Many pastors are searching for sermon topics to preach. Since some completely ignore the dispensation they are in, or they are ignorant of it, we will supply a few topics for them. These subjects will not help your people understand right divisions, but they will give them […]

PEACOCK PREACHERS

Wednesday, February 24th, 2010

THE PREACHER OF TITLE By Ken Blue “Vanity of vanities, saith the Preacher; all is vanity.” I have observed some repulsive and disgusting behavior in my time, but none is as revolting as the preacher who fancies himself important because of station or position. Some men are intoxicated with their title. They think themselves infallible […]

THE WATER BOTTLE

Sunday, February 21st, 2010

By Ken Blue It is human to adopt the actions and habits of others; especially when we hold these people in admiration. Not that these practices are wrong, but they are amusing to say the least. Dr. Jack Hyles was plagued with a constant cough when he preached. Preacher boys who followed him unconsciously adopted […]

FLUFF IS NOT ENOUGH

Thursday, November 12th, 2009

FLUFF DOES NOT EDIFY By Ken Blue “Holding fast the faithful word as he hath been taught, that he may be able by sound doctrine both to exhort and to convince the gainsayers.” Titus 1:9. The man who knows the least, usually, talks the most and the loudest. This is a cover-up for his insecurity […]

WHY SOME PEOPLE WILL NEVER LIVE FOR GOD

Thursday, October 22nd, 2009

THE REACTION OF PEOPLE TO THE GOSPEL By Ken Blue “And he spake many things unto them in parables, saying, Behold, a sower went forth to sow; 4 And when he sowed, some seeds fell by the way side, and the fowls came and devoured them up: 5 Some fell upon stony places, where they […]

THE SONG AND THE SERMON

Thursday, October 15th, 2009

THE IMPORTANCE OF THE SONG SERVICE By Ken Blue Perhaps the best example of “the right hand not knowing what the left hand is doing,” is in the lack of coordination between the Pastor’s sermon and the music director’s selection of songs. Seldom do these two connect the music with the message. I have watched […]

WHO CAN UNDERSTAND THE UNKNOWN TONGUE

Friday, August 14th, 2009

GOD WANTS US TO UNDERSTAND By Ken Blue “If therefore the whole church be come together into one place, and all speak with tongues, and there come in those that are unlearned, or unbelievers, will they not say that ye are mad?” 1 Corinthians 14:23. The Sunday morning sermon, in some churches, is like a […]
