Inspiring Sermon! Yes, we all have many memories of people who we have hurt, and also those people who have hurt us, but either way, that kind of thinking is harmful in our growth as Christians. I find that whenever I have those negative thoughts I have to go back to reading and studying the Holy Scriptures even more deeply and listen to some of the great preachers/teachers on SermonAudio.com. They are a blessing in many ways, just do something instead of concentrating on the hurts.
Great Sermon! We have so enjoyed your messages on Walking in the Spirit, and now on Running the Race. We have no problem with the fact of eternal security, but am sorry to say that the closing statements in this particular sermon were so confusing (We stand on eternal security, of course). We hold to the pure necessity to keep running the race. This is why "run that ye may obtain" has to mean our works not being burned up, "saved, yet as by fire". We are sorry that you lean toward it meaning Heaven itself. We truly know that you do not believe in Lordship salvation, at least we hope that you do not. We LOVE your sermons and praise the Lord that God brought you to BJU!
