The Price Christ Paid for Your Church

Eric Dodson | September 6, 2016

It should be the essential goal of every Christian, to keep the two greatest commandments of loving God with all our heart, soul, mind, and strength and to love our neighbors as ourselves. When you boil down the tasks of the pastor, everything fits into these commands as well. The shepherd must live reverently, loving […]

Cultivating a Berean Mindset

Eric Dodson | August 9, 2016

It’s the impassioned plea of every pastor: “I just want my people to be like the noble Bereans.” We read the description of those noble believers in Acts 17:11, and we beseech the Lord to give us a congregation full of people who receive our messages with eagerness and search the Scriptures to make sure […]

A Portrait of Faithful Ministry

Eric Dodson | June 3, 2016

Paul’s epistle to the Romans is widely celebrated for its detailed treatment of gospel truth and exhortation to transformed biblical living. It was the section of Scripture that led to Luther’s salvation and lit the fire of reformation in his heart. It’s a book that has been used by God to save, edify, and instruct […]

Preaching as an Act of Worship

Eric Dodson | April 7, 2016

When considering how to preach, we often think about certain words: faithfully, exegetically, expositionally, passionately, clearly . . . I’d like to take this post to encourage you to preach doxologically. Preach in such a way that drives you — and your listeners — to unbridled worship. Consider the example of Scripture. Paul, after discussing the faithfulness of God as seen […]

Teach Your People to Suffer

Eric Dodson | February 29, 2016

My lovely wife and I were sitting in a parenting class at church, when the chairman of the elder board came and asked for us. Actually he asked for “the parents of Calvin Dodson.” Slightly embarrassed, thinking our little one must have thrown a fit, or done something else to show we really needed the […]

Transforming Homosexuality

Eric Dodson | November 19, 2015

Book Review: Transforming Homosexuality: What the Bible Says About Sexual Orientation and Change, by Denny Burk & Heath Lambert (P & R Publishing, 2015) Perhaps no subject is more hotly debated in today’s society than the issue of homosexuality. This topic has dominated political debate and public discourse for much of the past decade, if […]

Helping People Reconcile

Eric Dodson | September 30, 2015

Since it was first penned by the apostle Paul, this powerful little letter has continued to impact the lives of individual believers […]
