Great Sermon! Thank you for this helpful message. It challenges me as a father to teach my children more intentionally on the doctrines of the faith.
I would agree, though, in many cases it is the role of parents, not youth group pastors, to train children in righteousness. We parents need to love our children enough to train them. That love engenders us parents spending less effort in pursuing the world's vanities and pursuing all means possible to equip ourselves and our children to live in this dark age.
I applaud you for training both children and adults. The youth pastor job description is miscast. He should be involved in training parents and families on the Gospel truths, not diverting youth with entertainment.
Great Sermon! Thank you, Brother Johnston. It is a helpful and sober reminder that the walk of us parents has great impact - good or bad - on our children. I seek to be more serious about prayer for the Lord's mercy on our family. Thank you.
Great Sermon! Thank you for providing this lesson in PDF. It allows the reader to reflect on the gravity of the subject of eternal destiny. Take time with people, especially family, and teach the Gospel.
Great Sermon! Thank you for this message on inner cowardice. Please include me in prayer that I would fear God more than man and love people more than protecting self from irrational fear. Blessings to you and your church!
Great exposition Thank you for this exposition of Abraham in Genesis 16-17. Your explanation of circumcision (true vs.false, outer and inner) was particularly helpful. As a father, I am concerned with showing my children what it truly means to be born again. Thank you.
Good perspective Thank you for your PDF on 1 John 4. A helpful contrast between the true comfort for the believer in Christ in the midst of a confusing and depraved world. Also appreciate the teaching that He can return at any time (yet we do not have to live in despair whether He does now or later).
Thank you. Thank you once again for a faithful exegesis of Genesis. Your commentary on a commentary (London Baptist Confession) was quite helpful to explaining the big picture of God's sovereignty and man's responsibility. It is quite humbling to know that my own devices would have sent me to eternal damnation. Yet God thru Christ had other plans! Praise Him, thank you for faithfully preaching His Word.
Helpful sermon Thank you for this message. I found it while going through personal reading about Abraham. Your exegesis on sources of Abraham's backsliding was great. Your personal example also made me think of my own backsliding in life. Indeed, God judges us, not the other way around. (But His grace is even greater - in your life, Abraham's, and mine.). Thank you for your ministry.
Great Sermon! Dear Pastor Sean, I have enjoyed some of your thoughtful news podcasts. This was the first sermon - which I read on PDF. Joshua 5 and 2 Peter were a great blessing. You did a great job in expositing Christ and His people. Appreciate seeing the NT in the OT and that God is sovereign even as we suffer temporary reproach. May The Lord keep you strong in His Word in preaching and living out its implications!
Great Sermon! Dear Pastor Vincent,
Thank you for this message. I appreciate your efforts in tackling this difficult passage of Scripture. It reminds me of God's holiness that requires us to observe His created order and His wrath against the perversion of that order.
Blessings to you, your family, and church.
Helpful message Thank you for this timely message. Appreciated the picture of Luke 18 and the mask analogy to justification. It is a blessing to hear your support for the true significance of 10-31 - not pagan revelry, but God's mighty gift of repentance and revival. Thank you!
