Amen, Amen and Amen! God's love is sublime. The Pastor knocks it out of the ballpark on this one for a game ending Homerun! Bless the Lord O my Soul Bless the Lord ! Bless you Pastor. I shared this with everyone I know friends, family and foes ! God's Love is Sublime. I had to look up the definition of sublime for an accurate definition it reads as follows and is aptly descriptive of our Beloved The Lord Jesus Christ! Sublime - of such excellence, grandeur and beauty as to inspire great awe and admiration.
As a man thinketh, so he is. You are what you eat, true, and more true you are what you think. Thou will keep him in perfect peace whose thoughts are stayed on thee - Isaiah. Thank you Brother for the message. Taking every thought captive is the where the battle is won(or lost). It is a fight but a fight worth fighting. I do find that the fight can get easier by taking every thought captive in 2 ways 1) Quantity you will have less bad thoughts to renounce 2) Quality you will have more lovely thoughts to embrace. This will give rise to that perfect peace referred to in Isaiah and the comfort of the Holy Spirit refered to in the Book of Acts. Wonderful peace and wonderful comfort both from the Wonderful Counselor!
Nice Allegory. A little slow up front and at first not sure where it was going but worth the initial ground work as I believe the Pastor pulls it all together, both the Book of Ecclesiastes and all the Books of The Bible. Both the Eternal hope of the future without living hopelessly in the present. True spirituality with keeping both feet on the ground. Great summary of the Quoleth ... An Old Man ... An Old Honest Man.
What Mercy. What wonderful mercy, the wonderful character of God! Thanks for the preaching Pastor it woke me up a bit more. Read this following commentary which I also found helpful. Few Old Testament personalities can compare in transparency with the prophet Jonah. We can see right through him. And most of what we see we don't like. He reminds us too much of ourselves: fearful, selfish, spiteful, and proud.Â
