Powerful I can't begin to express what a blessing this sermon was to hear. This is not just a sermon of hope for the spiritually burned-out but also for people we know who are going through such times. It is filled with deep insight into this condition which entails much more than what we think. Pastor Reed accurately describes the symptoms of burnout and more precious than that is how he goes through 1 Kings reference and applies it to those experiencing dryness and burnout. This message is genuinely a gift of grace to those who listen to this and find themselves tired, weary and worn out in every respect. It is easy to forget that there are seasons in the Christian life. We tend to think of it as always spring and summer -- full of life, victory and joy, yet forget that it also entails times of fall and winter that is dry, empty and exhausting. May we heed the wise advice that Pastor Reed provides when we find ourselves in our own spiritual winter, and let it help us know how to help those we know who are going through their winter.
Thank you Pastor Reed for such a God-sent timely and Spirit-filled message. May the Lord bless you.
Praise God for this sermon! Siblings, if you prayed "God speak to me" and are looking to hear Him, press play. This sermon is overflowing with the anointing of the Holy Spirit of God. I have never read the Scriptural passages discussed in this sermon in this light before, truly, God spoke to us today! Won't you hear what He had to say through His servant Pastor Barry? Grace and peace to you all through Jesus Christ our Lord!
Powerful Sermon! The value that God places on your soul is worth more than the whole world to God, so much so, that it pleased Jehovah to strike His Only Son so that we may inherit eternal life. Friends, God is so big, that the heavens of heavens could not contain Him! And He is so small, that He lives in my humble heart! This sermon was anointed by the Holy Spirit, truly, I have found my place! Praise and glory be to God through Jesus Christ our Lord that we have a Pastor here who desires to be separated unto the Gospel of Jesus as the apostle Paul was.
A Must Listen!!! I have to say, if you are looking to listen to any sermon, let this one be it. I am so blessed and much more enriched spiritually having listened to it. How does God describe Himself and how does that relate to you today? Among many others, these are two key questions addressed in this powerful sermon. God bless and keep you and yours through Jesus Christ our Lord Pastor Barry, thank you for another powerful sermon. Thank you for laying the groundwork's necessary to not only win but also build up souls that are settled in the faith. Blessings!
What is your way? This was time well spent! If you feel like you go to church but guard your heart and resist the word of God, please, press play, God is trying to speak to you today! A quiet time with God where you don't hear His voice is a waste-of-time.
This sermon is looking at the way you are in your prayer life, asking you where you are in God's plan, your holiness and walk with God! It challenges you to seek the Lord while He is near. Instructs that if you are not as busy spiritually as you need to be, then you will slow down.
It warns through the bible, woe to those who have a holy glow to them, to you who hide behind a cloak of godliness but seek not the counsel of God. We must turn from such people, just as our Lord Jesus turned and said to Peter: "Get behind me, Satan! You are a stumbling block to me; you do not have in mind the concerns of God, but merely human concerns." [Matthew 16:23]
"Spare me God, but don't spare my sin!" Truly, a very powerful prayer from a sincere heart who hates what God hates. We all ought to seek and desire such a heart that longs for what God longs for. We should seek to live a transparent life before God, for none of our ways are hidden from Him.
Thank you yet again Pastor.B for another convicting and spirit-filled sermon. God bless and keep you and yours through Jesus Christ!
Very Powerful Sermon! Pastor.B really gets into the specifics behind the charters of the story of the Prodigal son, you may think I have heard it before but you have not heard it put like this before, press play, you will not regret it.
What does God see when He looks at you??? God does not just make the world, He keeps it going, 'by Jesus Christ everything consists' (Colossians 1:17)
You may not be wanted or liked where you are, but you are not an accident, God planned you and desires to know you. Go to church and listen to sermons, but do not neglect the most important aspect of your spiritual journey, giving your entire heart to God; a personable relationship with your Maker; an open and loving communion between you and your Father in heaven, where you never keep secrets from one another. Don't love God because of what He can do for you, love God JUST BECAUSE! Just because He is who He is, as He said to Moses, "I AM WHO I AM. This is what you are to say to the Israelites: 'I AM has sent me to you.'" (Exodus 3:14) This is what I got from listening. Praise You Lord, my God, praise You for who You are!
Another powerful sermon Pastor Barry, God bless you mightily and may He continue to inspire and anoint your message through the Holiest of Spirits, in Jesus Name and for Jesus' sake, Amen!
Am I misunderstanding your opening comments? I keep a Saturday Sabbath. For a long time there were no assemblies in my area which were Messianic or Sabbath keeping which observed the Feasts and Holy Days and the Lord Sabbath Day. Then one came along. It has divided three or four times over the last 10 years. Small groups which meet in people's homes or the town's civic hall. If you knew what that town was like you might not want to step foot in it on the Sabbath Day, either. For a while I was out of work. No real extra income to go driving around looking for people who might worship like I do. Nor able to travel 50 miles or so away for services. Then I was growing older having health issues and just plain tired and worn down. So keeping Sabbath at home with personal Bible study, related literature I have in books and music corresponding to the Sabbath or Feast or Holy Day. Then I got a laptop 3 years ago and I could find resources that I had searched online at the library, but not on Saturdays. I found many good resources to worship and praise and study with and I did not feel so all alone anymore. I even found your posts on SermonAudio and was a faithful listener for about 2 years. Then you got on Facebook. Things changed in your attitude. In the past year or so, so has the tone of your sermons. ???????????
Heavy Sermon! The others looked at the giants and expressed their fear, but Caleb looked at the giants, then he looked at God!And when he saw how big his God is, fear was the furthest thing from his mind! He was a very loyal dog (if you listen you will understand), indeed! A MUST listen for all who have friends or who themselves leave the faith because of what they read on goggle.
A MUST LISTEN! I do not want to get in the way of this powerful message, so I will keep it brief. This is a very heavy sermon, but more than that, it is a very necessary sermon. Something will change inside you for the better if you listen to this, truly. Praise God!.
