28 Then tidings came to Joab: for Joab had turned after Adonijah, though he turned not after Absalom. And Joab fled unto the tabernacle of the LORD, and caught hold on the horns of the altar. 29 And it was told king Solomon that Joab was fled unto the tabernacle of the LORD; and, behold, he is by the altar. Then Solomon sent Benaiah the son of Jehoiada, saying, Go, fall upon him. 30 And Benaiah came to the tabernacle of the LORD, and said unto him, Thus saith the king, Come forth. And he said, Nay; but I will die here. And Benaiah brought the king word again, saying, Thus said Joab, and thus he answered me.
Great Sermon! Not only does Brother Don state it, it is the sum and substance of scripture from Genesis to Revelation!!!!
King James Version (KJV)
8 For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God:
9 Not of works, lest any man should boast.
10 For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them.
Indeed Mr. Taylor, salvation is ENTIRELY the work of the LORD, before the foundation of the world!!! It is not the "old Path' it is the narrow way, that leads to an eternity of bliss in CHRIST!!!!! Who loved his elect, and gave Himself for us on Calvary!!!!!!! That we may have eternal life in HIM, who is all and in all!!!!!!

It seems he is saying here it is not about us or our efforts but rather about God and his sacrifice that we look to. Grace rather than works.
