I was once again privileged to preach to the folks at First Baptist Church of New Albany, OH on the final Sunday of May, 2016.
As you, dear reader, may know, I have recently been trying to memorize chunks of Scripture. One of my favorite passages is Psalm 34. As I believed the end of Psalm 34 dovetailed nicely with my sermon text (Luke 16:19-31), I attempted to publicly recite Psalm 34 ESV from memory as the Scripture reading portion of the sermon. My kids noticed only a couple mistakes.
It was truly a blessing to recite Scripture from memory publicly; it is much harder than testing myself on my iphone. Additionally, I really enjoyed preaching this message from the Bible. I hope you will be encouraged and convicted as well.
