Great Sermon! This spoke levels to me. On many occasions I have felt so stressed out and wondered if I really had been called. I thought about something a few days ago that happened a lifetime ago when I was a teen that gave me my answer. This msg with the knowledge of my past gives me much renewed hope and much needed forgiveness. Thank you!

The Word speaks plainly True believers who are born again have nothing to worry about ever because the Word gives us assurance of our Eternal Salvation.
Jude 24-25King James Version (KJV)
24ï¿½Now unto him that is able to keep you from falling, and to present you faultless before the presence of his glory with exceeding joy,
25ï¿½To the only wise God our Saviour, be glory and majesty, dominion and power, both now and ever. Amen.
Romans 8:38 Context
35Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? 36As it is written, For thy sake we are killed all the day long; we are accounted as sheep for the slaughter. 37Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us. 38For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, 39Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
We don't trust in 'feelings' but in Christ and faith in Him, is a gift from Him.

Great Sermon! So important. Great message packed into the limited time -- clear, personal, scriptural, captivating.

Great Sermon! and very Powerful! This was indeed a sermon to listen to most attentivly! There was both warning as well as affirming faith in our Savior Jesus Christ. May we all take heed to the warnings we find in the Scriptures lest there were to be found an unbelieving heart. This is both edifying and very stron preaching/teaching. May there be other pastors bold enough to confront their congregations. Thank you....
Great Sermon! What an excellent, loving message. Thank you.

Great Sermon! WOW! This message was so encouraging for me to be reminded that God will truly finish the work He began in my life. I immediately thought about brothers & sisters who struggle with their faith and I am so happy that I can share this truth with them. I can truly apply the teachings in this sermon to my life and that is what preaching is all about.

Enlightening Dr Minnick presented hebrews in a way that open wide my visions on real faith. This message is truly a very important point every believer in Christ should know and understand. Thank you Dr Mark you are truly an annointed messenger from above.

Certainly Needed Today One cannot help but wonder the degree to which leading people in a prayer that is supposed to assure one of salvation contributes directly to the problem Dr. Minnick addresses in this sermon. How many people, when wrestling with their salvation, have been falsely assured of salvation based on something like, "did you ask Jesus in your heart?" To which the person says "yes" and he is assured of salvation without asking legimate questions concerning the presence of genuine faith. Questions like, "Are you crazy about Jesus?" Or, "does the story of redemption evoke within you authenticate feelings of love and gratitude toward your Savior?" The application of 1 John 2:19 is quite appropriate. And given more time Dr. Minnick no doubt would have included Peter's call for us to make our election sure (2 Peter 1:10) or Paul's directive for Christians to examine themselves (2 Cor 13.5). To me Matthew 7:21 is one of the scariest verses in the Bible, for Jesus said "many in that day" how many is many when Jesus asks the question? Dr. Minnick works the numbers down to 10% falling away. But we all know it is ridiculous to suggest that 90% of any collective body of believers is converted. This message must be preached by all w/ a call to repent/believe the gospel without praying another prayer.

Timely ! Although addressed to college students, this is equally applicable to all, of any age, who claim to be 'Christian' in these days as we see such apathy and darkness all around. Thanks be to God for faithful servants and for evidence that the Holy Spirit is still working within them in a tired world.
Pastor Minnick's philosophy of ministry places a priority on serious attention to the precise, systematic exposition of the Word of God, coupled with an emphasis on faithful, systematic community evangelismâ€”taking the Word to the world. His passion is to seek and to display the...
