Great Sermon! I am a woman. I don't hate Paul. I am married. I am a "she" married to a "he." I dropped ANY and ALL correspondence with "Ms." and replaced with "Mrs." years ago, as I want NO affiliation or support of feminism, which I admit I once indoctrinated into. I took my husband's last name. I am a highly repentant sinner who wants to honor the teachings of the Bible. I need sermons that are on fire like yours, especially as the evil ramps up... Thank you.
Love it I love that Spurgeon always preached as if the worst person in all the world could have complete forgiveness in Christ. He was revolutionary and this kind of preaching on God's free love is full of meditation.
Great Sermon! Pastor Cooley, I really enjoyed listening to this Sound The Battle Cry message, so very powerful, I hope this message will be heard by many. May God continue to bless you, your family, and ministry.
Thopught Provoking Sermon! This sermon gets at one of the most important topics in our life -- time, and what and how do we do with it. This message gives us a checklist that makes us wonder about what we're doing with our most precious commodity time.
We only have a limited amount and once used we cannot redeem it for better use.
There are so many ways we waste it, that this message will give us a grasp of the many uses available that we don't realize. Great questions and answers as we go through life.
Great Sermon! Pastor Cooley, I just wanted to say, what a powerful sermon, I hope this message will be heard by a lot of people. Please continue to preach God's word, may the Lord bless you, your family, and ministry.
Spirit of Love? 1 Corinthians 13:1-8 KJV
 Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, and have not charity, I am become as sounding brass, or a tinkling cymbal.  And though I have the gift of prophecy, and understand all mysteries, and all knowledge; and though I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, and have not charity, I am nothing.  And though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor , and though I give my body to be burned, and have not charity, it profiteth me nothing.  Charity suffereth long, and is kind; charity envieth not; charity vaunteth not itself, is not puffed up,  Doth not behave itself unseemly, seeketh not her own, is not easily provoked, thinketh no evil;  Rejoiceth not in iniquity, but rejoiceth in the truth;  Beareth all things, believeth all things, hopeth all things, endureth all things.  Charity never faileth: but whether there be prophecies, they shall fail; whether there be tongues, they shall cease; whether there be knowledge, it shall vanish away.
The Blessed Hope!!! I'm so glad you had a sermon on this. Churches who actually understand this properly (as yours does) should be preaching this often, especially NOW! The blessed hope calls us to live with the expectation that the Lord could return at any moment, which also gives us a desire to spread the gospel quickly and fervently. We (the bride) need HOPE now in this current time, we need this comfort also. Please continue to preach and teach on this!!!
Good Sermon! Thank you for a good sermon! I'm glad there are still SOME churches, such as yours, teaching the true words of the bible without compromise. The reversal of moral and ethical values in this day and age is as bad as in the days of Noah and in the days of Lot. Thankful for the blessed hope!
Summary, Part 4 (final) CONCLUDING OBSERVATIONS [49:05]. 1. Deliverance from physical slaveryâ€”as in the case of Israelâ€™s deliverance from Egyptian bondageâ€”is powerless to make a person a true worshiper of God. Miracles alone donâ€™t save. We see miraculous deliverances of non-Christians, and even they may even see Godâ€™s hand in it, yet they will return to their old ways because they never mixed what they saw with repentant faith. Christâ€™s miracles did not automatically deliver the Jews. 2. Those whom God has redeemed are not free to devise methods of worshiping Him (cf. Col 2:23, Ps 25:4-5). 3. Redeeming grace leads Christians to worship God as He has commanded. Godâ€™s grace and truth will propel the grateful, perceiving heart to true worship, and He will want nothing else. Creative worship is a plague on the church today. What motivates them, remembrance of Godâ€™s blessing or boredom? Ps 119:45 â€“ David links liberty with Godâ€™s precepts (cf. Jas 1:25).
Summary, Part 3 III. [37:03] Once Israel entered the Promised Land, not only were they not to adopt the idolatry of the nations God would destroy before them, but they were not to defile the pure worship of Jehovah by adapting it to the pagan practices of those nations (Deut 12:28-32). LESSONS [39:52]: 1. Worship that is â€śgood and right in the sight of the Lordâ€ť requires careful inclusion of all and only what He has appointed in His worship (v. 28). 2. Those who worship God in a way that is â€śgood and rightâ€ť in His sight are promised His continual blessing (v. 28). God delights to honor those who honor Him. 3. Godâ€™s destruction of His enemies is a clear indication of His displeasure with pagan worship (implied) (v. 29). 4. The Lord not only forbids His people to worship their pagan neighborsâ€™ false gods, they must not intrude any of the elements of pagan worship into His worship (v. 30). He forbids all creative worship. 5. God abominates all forms of worship that He has not commanded (v. 31). Jer 7:31 is a negative expression of this idea. 6. Worship that is â€śgood and right in the sight of the Lordâ€ť includes only those things that God has appointed (not simply excluding what He has expressly forbidden) (v. 32). Deut 4:2 is a positive expression of this idea. Cf. LBC 22.5.
Summary, Part 2 3. As a liberated slave who delights to worship the God who delivered you from your sin, you agree with the Lord that idolatry and false worship deserve the wrath of God. We must think Godâ€™s thoughts after Him. Does our gift bring us to greater love for the giver? II. [24:30] (Deut 16:12-17). The Bible further teaches that most former slaves who have been delivered by God should be the MOST careful of worshipers as well as the MOST joyful and the MOST generous. LESSONS [28:09]: 1. The worship of former slaves delivered by God should be careful, delightful, deliberate, and generous. God organizes our worship for specific and helpful reasons. This alone should bring us joy. Do we rush to church in a disorganized way or do we plan ahead to engage in our worship? And do we give back to Him who gave us eternal life? 2. Former slaves do not consider Godâ€™s worship to involve unhappy inconvenience but principled, joyful commitment. Does the Lordâ€™s Day seem to keep coming out of nowhere? Do we set all else aside for that day or do we fit it into â€śour scheduleâ€ť? Once youâ€™re at church, do you like being there?
Summary, Part 1 The remembrance of our deliverance will exert a profound influence on how we worship God. Our deliverance from spiritual slavery will endear us to our liberating master: we love God because He first loved us. We are motivated by Godâ€™s gift of His Son: not just His life, but His atoning death. After all of this, we should preoccupy ourselves with proper worship: how HE commands it. If we love Him, we will worship Him as He pleases. I. When He delivered the Hebrews from Egypt, He had to teach them proper worship (Ex 13:3) [starting at 11:17 of the audio]. The prohibition of leavening bread pictured their readiness to leave Egypt in a hurry. Deut 6:10-15 â€“ Moses exhorts Israel to never forget their Lordâ€™s giving hand in times of blessing. Tolerance leads to approval, which leads to imitation. If they forgot Him, He would treat them as His enemies and eventually destroy them. LESSONS [20:06]: 1. God joins gratitude for His gifts, remembrance of His deliverance, and the worship of His name. What God has joined, let no man separate. 2. God loves His people with a jealous love. He doesnâ€™t want us flirting with other gods. Anything we love more than God is our idol. Is He enough for you?
