Great Sermon! Very good sermon! Touched both my heart and mind! Few can preach about the Alabaster Box with enough anointing that the hearer may inhale the fragrance of Christ! Thank you Pastor! God bless you!
Great Sermon! I truly loved your sermon. I heard your heart beat in your words. To be so broken in the hands of the Master, it is not a small achievment. I am a misssionary in Nigeria. You have refeshed my soul. God bless you, your family and church,

Great Sermon! Very good sermon! Thank you Pastor! You not only preach well, but you preach standing at the Door of the Tabernacle! I have heard other good preachers, but their voices came from 'the open fields' and I could not receive their good words.
God bless you, your family and church

Great Sermon! Dear Pastor Alan, Thank you for a wonderful sermon! As I listened to you I saw something new. Praise God! As a medical doctor and pastor myself, I have to deal with the desire of people to 'make me king' and to 'worship me'. This desire in people has to be dealt with; if not, it will bring the leader into a place (of sin) where he is 'forced' to share some of the glory with God.
I see here that Jesus has two strategies:
With the (political) crowds Jesus withdrew Himself from them.
With the disciples, especially Peter, He had to confront that tendency in them. He chose the place of confrontation on top of the sea, their familiar 'ground'. He commanded 'good cher'. Peter responded with 'bad' cher, fleshly confidence that he can do what Jesus does, with the rest men as audience. When he sank in the water and Jesus saved him, it was clear who is the Lord (and who is not). Peter and all they had to learn that there is only One Lord,Jesus Crist! Worship cannot be contaminated by man, even at his best moments. Thank you for helping me see this new (for me) revelation.
God bless you, your family and ministry,
In Christ alone, Lia Leigh.
