    As God gave me the concept of the first sermon based on the title of the soap opera, One Life To Live, my wife started naming of the other soap operas that have come on over our lives since we first got our television back in the late fifties. The Spirit of the Lord started speaking to my heart to write a series of sermons that would chronicle these soap opera titles. As my mind and spirit focused on what could become of this effort, God pushed me a little further to enclosed these sermons in a book called The Soap Opera Chronicles. I sat down late one night and as God gave me the inspiration I was able to pull biblical scriptures that would best suit the message intent that God would have me to portray in my writings. One by one God would give me an inspiring scripture that lit up the pages of each message to tell the old-old story.

    I hope that through this book, men, women, boys and girls that religiously watch the soaps would look at these series of sermons as a message that may speak to their heart and ask the question, what must I do to be saved? I hope that as you read them one by one and reflect back on your life, God will use them to help you realize that life is not a soap opera if it is grounded and rooted in Christ. As I chose each of the soap operas based on name and storyline, I wanted to express in each sermon a spiritual message that would draw attention to each reader about his or her relationship with God. Each name of the selected soap opera would have a divine message in the name itself and then when coupled with Biblical scripture, it would open up the mysteries of God’s word to the everyday student of the soap operas in a way that they have never seen before. The simple gospel message portrayed through the parody of these soap operas to reveal Christ. I know for myself that without God, life can be a soap opera. The Bible says, “Trust in the Lord with all thine heart and lean not unto thine own understanding.” If you would trust in our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ life will become a reality of truth, not a soap opera of lies.
