Great Sermon! i was really touched by the message "i am the true wine". eventhough i am a christian who has received salvation my life is not fully committed to him. time and time again sins crept into my life making it so difficult for to build my spiritual life. I felt so reassured that Jesus Christ was telling me " He is the true wine " and that i just need to get closer to him after listening to this message.
Great army of Christ. I like to learn about these brothers and heroes of faith: we are encouraged by their lives and we discover how numerous is the army of Christ. I liked to listen to these series and I am waiting for another series...
Great zeal for God. A story of conversion, faithful preaching, failure and fear of death, restoration, faithfulness, courage and martyrdom for the glory of Christ. A great man given by Christ to His church.
Great act of God. We must not see the beginning of the Reformation in England as the political act of Henry VIII. We must look to the preaching of the Gospel, to the translation of the Bible and its spread and to the Societies of Christian Brethren. God used Henry's acts, but the renewal came through the Word of God.
Listening to God. How many time I experienced that God touched me with His word at fellowship time or in the church - and all this lasted for ours or for a day! But here Nehemiah is touched so deep that he was in grief for many days! We need that God's word and God's work may touch us deep in our beings!
Worshippig on the basis of good stories. Satan gave to this world a very popular excuse to not believe in the Bible, because of Dan Brown's book. The irony (and at the same time, the tragedy of it) is that the book is a story, a fiction. In a novel, the writer has the absolute liberty to do what he wants with the subject, to invent everything, to the point of endangering the state of his soul... But fiction is not reality. The pretension that the book is at the same time, fiction and reality, is a non-sense. Good argumentation of Gordon Dane, I liked especially the argument about the fragment from the Gospel of Phillip.
