Great Sermon! Wonderful, clear preaching on Jesusâ€™s declaration that He is the way, the truth and the life, and that no one comes to the Father except through Him. Very helpful for witnessing to unbelievers.
Great Sermon! I listened to this sermon because my church is in the process of electing more elders and a pastor. It was an excellent exhortation of the qualities God requires in a man who would hold such an office. It was thoroughly based on scripture, especially 1 Timothy and Titus.
The sermon was from 2002, but it was surprisingly relevant for our nationâ€™s current political crisis, since extreme Trump supporters broke into the Capitol building last week and vandalized it, an action which caused the deaths of five people. Back in 2002, this pastor rebuked the people in the pews for being so consumed with the subject of their political leaders, while spending so little time thinking and praying about leaders in the church, which is much more important. He said that governments and nations rise and fall, but Christâ€™s Church endures forever. Amen and amen!
Great Sermon! This was brilliant preaching! I understand this portion of God's word so much better then I ever did before. Thank you, Lord, for the men you raise up to preach your word faithfully, by the power and wisdom of Thy Spirit.
Very compelling. It is very interesting to see the connections between the call of Elisha and his response and the calling of the disciples of Jesus and their responses in various gosples as well as Paul in Phillipians. Our response to Jesus's call is to loose everything for the sake of knowing Christ as Saviour and Lord.
Great Sermon! This is one of the best sermons on affliction that I've ever heard. Such good medicine for the self-pity and depression that I have been struggling with since becoming permanently physically disabled. Thank you so much.
Great Sermon! Not at all what I expected. Much better, focusing on higher things. Mostly about Isaiah 53, the sufferings of Christ in our place. These are the fundamental truths that drive away self-pity and make me grateful to God for saving me from hell. That is more important than anything else, including physical disability and all the other sorrows of life in this fallen world.
Great Sermon! Wonderful applications. I was especially struck by the admonition not to commit idolatry toward other human beings. How I wish evangelical Christians in the US would realize that truth and adjust their attitudes toward political leaders.
Also liked the part about the need to deflect any glory and praise that comes to us and give it to God, to whom it belongs. How we ignore this truth in this day of self-esteem. Christian parents should hear this and teach their children not to accept praise for themselves, but rather give it to God.
Excellent exposition The pastor preaches about the spread of sin from one man to a tribe to a nation just like Adam's sin spread to all mankind. He reminds us of the comic foolishness of idolatry and the ultimate destruction of those who give themselves over to it.
May the Holy Spirit destroy the idols that we each cherish in our heart so that only the cross remains standing.
Great Sermon! Wonderful sermon especially the last part showing us how Samson is a picture of Christ being delivered up by the Jews to the Gentiles for the purpose of being killed and how Jesus could have saved himself as Samson did but chose not to for the sake of his people.
Great Sermon! This really convicted me about my own sin of functional unbelief in my life. What a comfort to be reminded of the Lord Jesus's patience with His sinful people. And to be reminded that God has made peace with us by consuming with fire the sacrifice, which was a goat here but ultimately was the Lord Jesus on the cross.
