Great Sermon! Wow. Thank you for a powerful sermon which really reigned true in my heart. You are a great blessing Tim Conway.
Great Sermon! “John Piper said it. He said that the reason why people can’t understand the doctrine of election is pride” – Tim Conway
Yet pride is so very stealthy and subtle that even the most humble of preachers have missed it.
What truth! I've listened to this sermon repeatedly, continually returning to it on days when self pity tries to convince me that I should give it space in my heart,

Thank you Tim,
Thank you for this message. Oh, thank you!
At my work right now I think I'm being "persecuted" or marked out at least for Christ's sake and to comfort myself through this scary trial I've leaned on verses that remind us to count it all joy. I've even rejoiced that our Lord has counted me worthy AND RIGHT THERE - bam - sin. Pride.
I hear myself saying, "I don't deserve this". Oh what irony.
I don't deserve the negative thing, nope, uh uh, but I ALSO don't deserve the honor that comes from receiving dishonor for the cause of Christ. What a wretch I am to look at how He's justified me and think "oh, is this the footwork for some glory coming my way?" Oh, brother. I deserve NOTHING. Thank you for this timely message.
May I pray rightly, ask rightly ... MORE HUMILITY FOR ME, LORD, PLEASE. May He glorify Himself and may I and especially my pride get out of the way.
Thank you, Tim.
BTW, you've come a long way since K-zoo. Don't let that fill yer bucket too much, eh, but it's true. I'm proud of you.
