Praise God! Thank you Pastor Stewart-how calm and gentle you were while clearly trying to explain the truth of Scripture to these very confused men. I pray for them since we know that only the precious Holy Spirit can lead those who are His into all truth. However, the Lord is pleased that you diligently and patiently opened the Word and dealt redemptively with their questions. I was raised in the Pentecostal tradition and the Holy Spirit led me eventually to love and believe the biblical doctrines of grace and the absolute sovereignty of God-He is able to sanctify and grow those who He truly regenerates. No one had to talk me out of my wrong pentecostal interpretations, God, the Holy Spirit convinced me of my error and is leading me on in truth and holiness-through trusted teachers to sanctification all the way to glorification one day! I thank God for faithful preachers like yourself who are not afraid to deal with tough challenges. May the Lord bless your ministry!
What a blessing your ministry is! I am so thankful to God for the great impact that the ministry of R.C. Sproul has had on our little church, Grace Fellowship in Bradenton, FL & my own personal spiritual growth. Our pastor recommends R.C. often for our people to read and to listen to and we do! We've brought groups to Ligonier Conferences and visited St. Andrews. We've used R.C.'s books as resources in our Bible Study preparation and God has mightily blessed our hearts. May the Lord continue to use R.C. and the Ligonier ministry to His glory and the spiritual good of many, as He has done for us! Thank you for your faithfulness to carefully preach the Word of God!
We are looking forward to this exciting event for women! What a joy to be able to offer such a feminine, fun-filled event for women while being sure that the strong truth of the Word of God will be proclaimed. We sincerely hope you will join us & pray about who you can invite for this afternoon of encouragement in God's Word and with God's people.
Great Sermon! It is so good to know that in Medford, NJ there is a committed expositor. I was so glad to find your church in downtown Medford. I grew up in Medford Lakes and even worked in high school at Braddock's Tavern and our Shawnee HS Bell Ringers did Christmas Concerts in the very building you are meeting in for church. This was all 30 years ago. At that time, our family had never heard of the OPC or even churches that taught biblical, historic Christianity. Today I live in FL where I am on staff at Grace Fellowship Church-check us out on sermonaudio.com/gfcbradenton. I praise God for HIs protection and for bringing us to a strong serious understanding of His holiness and His truth. I still have a few friends in your area-I will be recommending your church to them-we'll see what God will do! Be encouraged "knowing that your toil is not in vain in the Lord!" I Cor. 15
I will pray for your church and pastor each time the Lord brings you to my remembrance! Praise the Lord for sermonaudio that allows us to see what is going on across the country-and to be encouraged that we are not alone-God always has a remnant!
