Great Sermon! Yes, I do find it uncomfortable. It's very terrifying. Whenever I hear a sermon on this portion I think to myself, could I be in that number (tho I've not done all those mighty things). Could I be deceiving myself? The older I get and the longer I travel this road, the road seems narrower and narrower. .
Great Sermon! I heard this sermon preached and would recommend it. The preacher proves from the bible who it is that is speaking in the preached word of God by genuine servants. This is something that has sadly been forgotten in many ecclesiastical circles. The pastor effectively communicates the dangers and implications of not listening to the word of God as found in the Hebrew passage. The puritans of bygone era's were fastidious about this truth so much so that they would spends Sabbath's not only in the house of God listening to the word of God but discussing it after the services where the head of the home would go over the points of this ministers sermon to screw the word of God into the family's mind and reinforce it, oh that Gods people would get back to this practice! Andrew's message drives at the heart of this important truth remember who it is that is speaking when we hear the Word of God preached by true servants and because of who it is that speaks what we ought to do with it, obey it.
Encouraging Sermon! My life feels similar to Ruth's road right now. This sermon was encouraging to hear of Ruth's life decision that may look crazy, leading to misery, but towards God it is still the right.
Seeing beyond our expectations, to His If you are hurting, or have lost something you hoped God would save, or are still praying for something He has not given, this is the sermon for you. I've always considered this one of the saddest and also most beautiful and glorious stories in Scripture: and one of the most beautiful concepts. That God does not work as we expect, and that beneath the hardest and toughest and most hurtful things in our lives is a deeper, "God-driven purpose." Listen to this sermon: really listen. It could change your life, and your perspective on it. What a sermon. What a Saviour.
Great Sermon! Hi Andrew; great series. Third time around listening for me.
15000 flyers from my experience in marketing usually only gets about 5 people to 'buy' what you may be selling.
Cold calling about 30/15000.
Don't be to upset about it.
Simply put; unless you can severely 'emotionally upset' someones sense of 'self sufficiency' ; you can not effect any persuasion.
Apart from that; you are a great preacher. Better a church with salt than a building full of sand.
Keep going Andrew!
Great Sermon! You are a great preacher. I wish I could speak like that. Please pray for me and my family. I'm seperated my ex has new girlfriend. I feel so alone my kids are torn. I pray to keep strong for them. My ex is horrible me he s so disrespectful. My priority is bringing up kids in Gids ways. It's a battle alright but I have Christian friends who are a blessing. Thank you again. Breege Matthew Joseph and √Āine.
IT CUT MY HEART Yes, Jesus prayed for He was a lonely man on this earth and was suffering from rejection which had resulted in depression. In those days they did not have any medication for depression as per now. So poor God-man had to depend on the foolish wisdom of HIS heavenly father to free Himself from the predators who could never be satisfied of their hunger for bread and wine. If He had lived presently, firstly, He would have taken the advice of well informed, highly qualified BRAINS that had taken billions of years to develop. Secondly, He would have had no choice but to have depended on the human knowledge of doctors which is based on the ever trust worthy power of REASONING that came to effect after billions of years of development. Poor Jesus! Thanks for explaining this fact in a simple way brother. ALL GLORY BE TO OUR LORD JESUS CHRIST!
