Thank you Trevor I don't use Facebook. However I do listen to you on this site. Also I do appreciate you taking the time to associate your biblical point of view to Scripture as required. I read a blog referencing Psalm 109 and it disturbed me. I listened to your nif from 1/4/11 through this site and greatly thank you on your rebuke and wisdom in handling the word of God. I am reading through as many sermons on this psalm as I can find. I am old school so I use biblebb.com to find how people viewed this psalm before modern times. Personally, I deserve these judgements before knowing Jesus. Most resources make the same references to Acts you did. Anyway, just wanted to encourage you to take the time to xref your commentaries back to scripture within sermon audio so people like me who maybe struggling with how God's word relates to this chaos today may get some sound doctrine.
It is ironic the people last week in Detroit asked Obama to bail them out for electing him. In 1973, Michigan was one of the first states to have a lottery to support Public education. look at the results. Lol.
Great Sermon! Trevor,
thank you for your podcasts. I firmly believe in th doctrines of grace and especially the one of the perseverance of the saints. I take great comfort in knowing "the good work God has begun in me, He will see to completion". You call it going through the motions, I call it obedience and trust. At my church, our motto is, "we are nobodies and Christ is all". We look to Jesus to change us in his time because we can not change ourselves. btw our church runs a homeless shelter so we have many, many visitors who have not heard the simple message "Jesus came into the world to save sinners." All our sermons define what that means so we don't talk a lot about how to be a better person and what works someone needs to do to get right with God. Just the good news that we are saved through what Jesus did. God told Abraham He would provide the sacrifice and He most definitely did.
