The Preaching & Teaching Ministry of Dr. Steven J. Lawson
A R T I C L E S
As we enter into the month of May, it is with deep gratitude and great pleasure that I look back on what God accomplished through this ministry in April. Our unwavering goal at OnePassion is to boldly preach the gospel to the lost and strengthen believers in their faith as they hold fast to the truth of God's word. As each door opens, this is our constant prayer for this ministry. Let me take a few moments to tell you about the month of April and all the Lord has done.
As we learned yesterday about the loss of Billy Graham, it is with a great deal of sadness that we say farewell to this extraordinary figure. Perhaps never again—certainly not within our life time—will we witness an evangelist with such a global outreach. He became a figure larger than life, and he did so by only preaching the simple message of the saving gospel of Jesus Christ.
As I look back over this past year, I can easily say that 2017 has been our greatest year to date. God has opened many doors, and by His grace, He has enabled us to go through them by faith. I want to thank you for your support of this ministry. I hope it will be an encouragement to you for me to give a quick survey of the year. Here is where we have been and what we have done.
I am very privileged to have known Doctor Robert Charles Sproul. We know him as R.C. This titanic figure was an evangelical Atlas, a formidable theologian, prolific author, and endearing pastor who will long be remembered for his substantial and significant contribution to the course of evangelical Christianity over many decades.
As Dr. Lawson begins a month long speaking trip we wanted to post his schedule and upcoming messages for those who would like to pray for him as he begins this long preaching tour around the US and then the world. Please pray the Lord would keep him safe as he travels and give him strength and energy as he speaks. We pray that at these events the lost would be reached with the gospel, pastors instructed to better proclaim the truth, and believers equipped and strengthened in their faith.
While many ministries often slow down during the hot summer months, we at OnePassion have done quite the opposite. This past month of July has been a time of increased effort for us in fulfilling the mission that the Lord has entrusted to us. It has also included some needed rest for me personally. Here is a look back at the month of July.
The month of June has been amazing month of ministry for us at OnePassion. I left Dallas at the end of May and have spent the entire month of June on the road, literally traveling around the world preaching at a fast pace. I want to walk you through where I have been and what the Lord has accomplished through our ministry.
As I write this monthly newsletter, I am presently in New Zealand, where I am leading The Institute for Expository Preaching, as well as preaching at a Bible conference there. I will be leaving here next week and traveling to Australia to preach at another Bible conference, and then after fly to the Philippines, where I will be leading another Institute for Expository Preaching.
Here at OnePassion Ministries, we are striving to do all we can in our attempt to reach this world for Jesus Christ. With our main focus upon training pastors to preach the Bible, we have had several opportunities to do this. Please allow me a moment to share some of the opportunities we have had in the month of April.
Biblical commentaries provide indispensable help to expositors in preparing their sermons and messages. In this Expositor Podcast, Dr. Steven J. Lawson shares with us the ones he recommends.
