Great Sermon! Wowwer! Great contrast between world and Christian. I used to have relationships and things of this world above Christ. It is still a battle with having my life crucified to the world but I'm getting there! Christ is the pearl of great price, the treasure in the field. Very sound and truthful preaching.
Great Sermon! I like pastor's definition of worship:living a life that exhibits God's worth. It's really pretty simple as pastor explains these verses in Heb 13:1-6. I am often too introspective of my walk. I was encouraged by the practical steps he lays out and believe that a life lived out of these verses will be a contented life.
Great Sermon! Why would one lay down their life? As Jesus did, so we can inherit the promise of eternal life. I do have hindrances in my life which I try to justify, that weigh me down. Am I intentional in the race, an active participant or merrily a passive bystander. Am I a good steward of the deposit God has entrusted to me-his word and doctrines. Lots of good challenging thoughts and practical application.
Great Sermon! Faith is the same from start of Bible to the end. I was also encouraged by fact that faithful saints were not perfect yet kept believing God. Its great to be a part of God's story and the end is nearer than we think.
Great Sermon! Why study prophecy and how is it relevant to my life today? This is excellent and encouraged me to know that all God's word is relevant. Many of these prophecies in Daniel have already come to pass- what about what God says about the future- Great White throne judgement, Heaven and Hell? These too will come to pass.
For those who can't sleep By chance I heard this for the first time in the middle of the night when I couldn't sleep. What a treasure for those lying awake at night! Download this one for times of sleeplessness. God bless Richard Caldwell for his ministry!
Great Sermon! It's interesting that God commended the saints of old, not necessarily for their martyrdom, self denial,or courage but for their faith. Its faith that pleases God! I need to remind myself of this regularly. Faith plus nothing of my own pleases God. And he does this work in us while we cooperate. Isn't God and his word awesome!
Great Sermon! This is excellent I tend to draw near to God in a cowering spirit Too often doubting his love due to my imperfections. I am encouraged to meditate more on gospel truth after listening to this Thank you!
Precious preaching! God's throne is one where we find grace and not wrath, despite our struggles. As I read these verses its easy to think of Jesus as a distant 'High Priest' having ascended to through the heavens to the right hand of God. In my unanswered prayers I wonder if God hears and cares for me (am I too sinful, faithless?). His wisdom is better than mine, and he knows whats best for my perseverance. Heb 4:14-16 is deep and this teaching really encouraged me.
