Good message One of the many important points in the sermon is that our first calling is to be WITH Him (Jesus).
Another one is that the word Pharisee literally means "separated one". But God calls us to be in a group, the church. I know several people who call themselves Christians and seem to truly be believers, but refuse to go to church. As another preacher said, "How can you love the Head but despise the body?" I pray that all the Lone Ranger Christians in our nation would hear messages like this and that God would move them to come back into his church.

Great Sermon! Excellent message to challenge the believer to a closer intimacy with Christ and to give us a sense of our privilege of being chosen by Christ.
