Great Sermon! Some great practical application of scripture. "How many times have you said enough is enough, but went right back to the poison well of the same old sin?" "It's not about performance it is about perseverance!"
Ouch and forward march Time to get motivated daily and stop being complacent. Salvation is for the here and now and not just the hereafter. Live like your saved and don't blend in with the crowd. It's interesting how we tend to justify sin when it's comfortable. We need to change our perspective. Is giving in to this temptation worth dismissing God's glory in our life? Lord, help us take the time to do battle by pondering your Word and not be damaging to your character by being self-indulgent.
Answering Questions Dear Anon,
Since I don't have your email address, I will simply point you to our "edocs" section on our SermonAudio page. There (and also on voiceofvision.org) you will find an article entitled "Why Church Membership?"
I would also suggest that you look at the pdf of this particular sermon.
God bless you.
The Best! Every week I say this is Pastors best sermon yet! Right on with the TRUTH and the application thereof. The Word brings life for sure! "If repentence doesn't hurt, it is not repentence". Amen. Keep bringing it, we (I) need this desperately.
