Profound! We feel timid in our evangelism and wish we felt bold and outgoing like we imagine the Apostle Paul was. But in reality he shared the gopel in weakness, and in fear, and in much trembling. God uses us in our weakness. When we are weak in ourselces, we are strong in God. The question is not "what will people think of me?" But "what can Jesus do through me?"
Excellent reminder! Encouraging reminder ro keep coming to the Lord insistently with our requests. We have His promises to stand on and to bring to Him as we plead. Give Him no rest, as Isaiah says. It is easy to talk about prayer but so hard to actually pray at all times. Our unbelief shows in our prayerlessness. Looking forward to the following sermons in this series.
Edifying! The opening Bible reading by Brother Shishko makes the text come alive in a new way. All ministers should read the Bible with this much expression and feeling. It really opens the understanding. God's word is living and powerful!
Extremely moving sermon! I have listened to this over and over. It comforts me and motivates me to carry on in the Lord's work, not with carnal weapons, but with the powerful weapons that God has given to us...weapons that are MIGHTY through GOD to the pulling down of strongholds!
"The problem with trying to decipher or decode God is that you cannot. God, if He exists, is so far beyond our comprehension that we could not begin to explain Him or break down His attributes into terms that make any sense to human logic. He created our logic. We are a creation. Things we create do not "figure us out". What they know is what we instill into them(computers, books, etc.). The creation is not meant to understand the Creator always. Obviously we are not inanimate objects, and we have a spiritual element that is not present in any other being, but the concept stands true. We will never be able to explain the Creator except through the Word He has given us and the experiences we have personally had with Him."
