I have decided to publish my weekly sermons on a new blog site, and provide a study for Home Groups with each sermon I post.
It’s what I am doing anyway: here at Gateway I write my sermons in the form of a full manuscript, and I also prepare weekly Home Group questions, so it’s only a little editing and they are ready to go on the blog.
I started this for a few reasons. One, there are plenty of people who like to read messages. I believe the Word of God is used by the Spirit to lead his people. And if my messages can be used like that, even beyond their typical Sunday context, I am all for it.
A second reason is that some people don’t have much access to word ministry. This blog, and others like it, might be an encouragement to them.
Third, the Home Group or Bible Study questions can work for groups of Christian meeting in a variety of contexts. They are designed to assist with applying the word to personal and communal situations, and encourage all who engage to be transformed by God’s word.

I am keen to hear how these work for you. Please feel free to leave feedback and suggestions.
Grace and peace,
