Great wisdom needed. Nine advises about how to rebuke sin in others and how to urge them to seek holiness. A message about the need for wisdom is talking to others and in rebuking them. We must talk so to win souls, not to irritate and offend them with our mode of talking.
Efficient witness. Baxter on HOW to be an efficient witness for Christ: seek knowledge and sanctification; be sincere; feel for the sinners; don't listen to your fear; be ready; stand at the important things; fit the witness after the person you are speaking with; don't forget your family; be serious; be patient.
Searching. It is not so hard to witness; to testify is legal; you also maybe was converted because somebody testified to you; the Devil's servants are full of zeal for their master - we should not be for our?; you've lost enough time with empty talking; sinners need somebody to testify to them; you have not much time left.
Excellent! Three ways to increase our sentiment of gratitude toward God: meditate on how ugly ingratitude is; meditate to the mercies of God; meditate to how unworthy you are to receive any favor from God. Followed by 2 excellent tests to see if you manifest gratitude or ingratitude.
Incredible testament of a true missionary! As someone living in the Far East, Hudson Taylor's story in his own words is just incredible to hear. "Godâ€™s work, done Godâ€™s way, will never lack Godâ€™s supply." What an incredible concept! Thank you so much for posting these incredibly encouraging mp3s!
He being dead yet speaketh Thankyou for this information of a dear brother in Christ.
I use 3 gospel tracts based on the writings of J.C.Ryle in my outreach work.
They are 1) The value of a soul 2)Jesus the Saviour and 3)The forgiveness of sins.
They are written lovingly but firm,Ryle never watered down the gospel,repentance being mentioned ,and hell for those who die unrepentant.
Thats how highly i respect this man and his ministry.
Thankyou brother Phillips for a really good message.God bless you for 2010 if we are spared.
Helpful but incomplete I've benefited a great deal from Michael Phillips's lectures on church history (and highly recommend them). His lecture on the Huguenots is admittedly short, but it lacks in the exact area where most discussions lack, that is, it doesn't cover the Huguenot's own militarism. I've found that secular lecturers pickup the militarism, but seem to minimize or mishandle the spiritual/theological nature of the Huguenots. This lecture is good, but is unfortunately an incomplete view of the French Calvinists of the 16th century.
