    For Pastors:

    If you had only 1 sermon to preach to the people you currently preach to, but couldn't tell anyone that it was your final sermon, What passage of Scripture would you preach on?

    I started to say it would depend on the reason for it being my final sermon, but changed my mind.

    Isaiah 45:5-9

    I just thot it would be interesting to think about. I would preach from Acts 20 with Paul talking to the Ephesians elders.

    I'd preach to them about how Saul went crazy and went on the run. Then I'd run out of the church and never come back. :laugh:


    Nah. I'd probably preach 1 Corinthians 15:1-7. It would be one last time to hammer home the point of what the gospel REALLY IS.

    Interesting question... I have several thoughts in mind, but probably Ephesians 1:1-15. Really says it all... :jesus:
