Preaching to Yourself

People have asked me about the sermon I preach to myself every day; here it is.  I hope it deepens your faith as much as it does for me.  


  • This is the day the Lord has made, I will rejoice and be glad in it
  • I am Gods beloved son. His love for me defines me
  • My identity is bound up in my oneness with Jesus
  • God is my Father. Jesus is my Savior. The Holy Spirit is my comforter, my guide and my source of power
  • My God is way bigger than all of my problems.  I will keep my eyes on him and his greatness and glory
  • By faith I can move mountains.  I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me
  • Pain is my friend. I will fellowship in the sufferings of Christ
  • No temptation can over take me if I look for the way of escape God will faithfully provide. I will look for opportunities in all of my problems
  • I will be joyful always, pray continually, and give thanks in all circumstances
  • I will love God with all my heart, soul, mind, and strength
  • I will love my wife Corissa and lay down my life for her as Christ did for his church
  • I will train up my kids in the ways of God so that when they get older they will not depart from his path
  • I will love my church and lead, pastor and evangelize with all my strength
  • I will lead leaders and be irrationally generous with my time, talents and treasure in fulfilling the mission of Jesus in making disciples of all nations
  • The Kingdom of God will come to earth today because God is at work in me and through me
