Awe-inspiring it is amazing how the speaker could bring someone to life through a simple lecture such as this. Hearing this brings me to shame of how lack of love and passion for God's Holy Word. One of my personal favourties and close to my heart.
Great Sermon! The story of Mary Jones has inspired many of us in Singapore. For we have possessed so abundantly and God‚Äôs word became so ordinary to us. Following Mary Jones, we have started a "Mary Jones Fund" in our family. There are so many things in life we can do without and can be given to the Lord ?
Great lesson - don't take God's Word for granted We are in a unique point in church history. Christians before us never had 1% of the access we have to God's word today. I often get the characters in church history mixed up, but after the first time hearing the story of Mary Jones in this sermon, I'll never forget who she is. She loved God and His word with such a love that she was willing to to school, learn to read (on top of working at home full time), work odd jobs for 6 years, and then walk 25 miles through rough terrain (by herself)... all so she could have and read God's word. By the way this is ALL as a young girl. I've listened to thousands of sermons, and this is one of my favorites. A wonderful reminder of just how much we must cherish every word of our Lord... and never take it for granted.
Powerful! A very powerful account of God's faithfulness to supply all that we need! A challenge to my whole approach to life. If you are not familar with the life of Hudson Taylor, it is a must listen to, it is more than worth the time to listen to the whole series.
Great Sermon! I've enjoyed the whole series of the lectures on church history by Rev Michael Phillips. these are all very well presented, not only very educational but also interesting and edifying. I recommend this series highly.
Great Sermon! Enjoying listening to Mr Phillips entire series on church history.
I just want to point out a small factual error....James I who was actually James VI of Scotland at the time was Mary Queen of Scots son and not Elizabeth I.
My apologies for being pedantic.
Many thanks for these lessons and may the Lord continually bless you.
Great Sermon! God bless you for a wonderfully researched and presented sermon on procrastination. It's one of the best I have heard in a long, long time.
Keep up the good work God has empowered you to do. You may never know - but your message has reached to a far corner of the earth and awaken a procrastinator! I am worshiping in Full Gospel Assembly -Taiping. Been to Malaysia? You are always welcome!
Great Series! This is a great series of sermon-lectures on Church History. Please make the effort to listen to the whole series. Pastor Phillips gives warm, devotional and challenging observations and applications from the History of God's dealings with His New Covenant Church.
Joe Morecraft III also has an excellent series on Church History which repeats some of the same ground, but goes into greater depth in the Reformation, Puritan and Covenanters priod. If, once you've finished with Pastor Phillips, you are hungry for more go to:
Great Sermon! I have read this book personally many times and find it challenging and encouraging, he is my favorite missionary. I am so thankful to find it here to download into my PDA to listen on the road. Thank you!
Great Sermon! Great Series! Pastors Phillips addresses the issues in a clear, intelligent, articulate, and balanced manner. He even addresses the difficult passages for the Calvanist view, which is very helpful. How refreshing compared to the ranting and raving of other Calvinist when they're preaching on the five points.
Excellent ,practical, series. This series on "money matters "i have found to be of great benefit,in a practical way of ones stewardship.
The sixth part was very good indeed,particulary in bro'Phillips exposition on Galatians 6:10,and his incredible study and thoughts on "tithing",which i have never come across before- excellent !Thankyou bro'for sound ,practical preaching in such a gracious manner.I really have appreciated this series on money matters.
Encouragement This transcript of his book is of great encouragement to me. God has called me to serve him in this way and this reading is a great encouragement to prayer a trust in the Lord for all means.
Excellent Study! Hear this wonderful Bible study!
One of the best explanations of
Hebrews 6 that I have ever heard!
All true believers will be saved (future) because they are saved now (in the present)... Yes, salvation is of the Lord!
A Great Man of God It was refreshing to hear more about the life of of the "Prince of Preachers." A great man of God like Spurgeon was a product of his up bringing, the world he lived in and the transforming work of Christ. This will be a worthwhile use of ones time to listen to his biography.
Great Sermon! "It's easier to stay home than go to church. Indwelling sin doesn't want to think divine thoughts. If you pray 20 hours a day, the Lord would owe you nothing. But God is so gracious He rewards you for doing what He tells you to do and gives you the grace to perform it! If you follow after holiness, you will never feel cheated! All those years of reading and studying the Bible and this is all I get--the presence of God?! No way. Doing Satan's will is a lot harder!"
I strongly recommend everyone tune in and get excited by the wonderful Savior we serve and His wonderful means of grace -- this sermon will remind you (as it did me) that we should be about our Father's business, if so be that we are Christians!!! And if you're not, God give you the grace to resist the devil and repent.
