Are You a Changemaker? posted by John Sorensen on Sep, 24


You know what?  You are important in the Kingdom of God.  I say that, and I would imagine many of you nodding your head in agreement, mostly because you think you should nod.  The truth is, I find many Christians who don't really believe they are important at all.  They believe that they're important enough, or loved enough, to be saved, but they aren't quite sure what they're saved "unto". ...  Read the full post ( 713 words, estimated 2:51 mins reading time )

Do We Pray for People by Name? posted by John Sorensen on Sep, 17


I have a friend named Barry Meguiar.  One day he asked me a profound question that literally stopped me in my tracks. He asked, "John, if God would save every person that you prayed for today, asking Him to save them specifically, how many people would get saved?” I was stunned. I honestly hadn't prayed for anyone, in particular, that day.  It's not that I don't pray, but too often, I pray...  Read the full post ( 443 words, estimated 1:46 mins reading time )

Conversation Starters posted by John Sorensen on Sep, 10


When I was a child, my mom told me that there were three things that you could never talk to people about in public.  Would you like to guess what they were? I'm sure, especially for those who are a bit older, the three came right to mind.  Perhaps you were taught the same.  You can never talk about money, religion, or politics in public without causing offense. Later, I got involved in adve...  Read the full post ( 532 words, estimated 2:08 mins reading time )

Prison Ministry turns Aging Congregation Upside Down posted by Evangelism Explosion on Sep, 5


One year ago, Southern Temple Baptist Church was slowly dwindling. Located in the inner city of Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, the aging congregation struggled – believing there was not much left for them to do. “They had given up on doing any kind of evangelism,” said Pastor Lynn Allen Turner, who left a street evangelism ministry to pastor the small church. Most of the 12 individuals who atte...  Read the full post ( 664 words, estimated 2:39 mins reading time )

Prison Ministry posted by John Sorensen on Sep, 2


Have you ever heard of, or used, the word, "Recidivism"?  Frankly, it's a tough word to say, but it's an important word. According to the National Institute of Justice, "Recidivism is one of the most fundamental concepts in criminal justice." It refers to a person's relapse into criminal behavior during a three-year period following the prisoner's release. The Bureau of Justice Statistics foun...  Read the full post ( 685 words, estimated 2:44 mins reading time )

Divine Appointments posted by John Sorensen on Aug, 27


A pastor from Dallas, Texas and I were having a discussion about the idea of Divine Appointments.  He seemed genuinely confused over the notion.  At noon, we headed off to lunch. Now, somewhat unrelated, that very morning I had received an email from my friend, Ed Stetzer. In it, he had informed me of a recent study, where they found that 10% of Americas were thinking about death every day. T...  Read the full post ( 556 words, estimated 2:13 mins reading time )

The Decision Point posted by John Sorensen on Aug, 20


Have you ever met anyone that is an amazing "Way of Life" witness?  Someone who is constantly sharing their faith, at the store, in a parking lot, at lunch or dinner, literally everywhere?  Well, I have.  In fact, the ministry of Evangelism Explosion was founded on several.  Dr. Kennedy was certainly like that.  The man who taught Dr. Kennedy to witness, Kennedy Smartt is certainly like that...  Read the full post ( 529 words, estimated 2:07 mins reading time )

The Reality of Hell posted by John Sorensen on Aug, 16


When is the last time you heard a sermon about Hell?  Or Heaven, for that matter? I remember the day I went to Dr. Kennedy, Evangelism Explosion's founder, and asked, "Why is it that pastors don't seem to want to get involved in the Great Commission?" He thought for a moment and said, “John, if God would dip all pastors in Hell for a fraction of a second and then yank them up by their shirt...  Read the full post ( 501 words, estimated 2:00 mins reading time )

Helping Students Stand Strong on College Campuses posted by John Sorensen on Aug, 6


This month, thousands of young people will invade campuses across our country only to encounter a culture conflict that they are not prepared for. And when they come face to face with a growing tide of atheists, who are prepared to challenge them on the basic foundation of the Bible, they crumble. An overwhelming majority will give little resistance and ultimately abandon their faith. How else...  Read the full post ( 379 words, estimated 1:31 mins reading time )
