Great Sermon! Thanks for that interesting piece of history. Being a man of God certainly didn't shield him from personal grief. Losing his wife and child reminds of the same grief in the life of another great man, John Patton.
Testimony that I needed to hear! Dear Pastor McLarnin,
There are other places where I could start, but this is a good one. I've now been "present" at your morning "live broadcast" six continuous times, and intend to continue. Why so long and so late(ly). I've only had a computer and a connection with the Internet for a rather short time. I'm seventy-two years of age, so when I say that all of this is quite new to me, you will understand.
I'd like to go on for awhile, but think I should wait to hear from you first. I thought the "Titanic" sermon with it's emphasis on people who have made a shipwreck of their lives without even thinking about it until long after it "happens" was a real gift from God. I'm born again (since three years of age) and so have some history, though really not much to share.
Now to Miss Martin: The kind of testimony I needed to hear. Maybe we do not have so much beyond our salvation and our love for God our Saviour in common, but then perhaps we do have a lot in common.
I've watched the (January Outreach) video twice now, and have two rather unimportant questions for you or Miss Martin: You mentioned where Miss Martin was originally from, and Miss Martin named where she and her mother moved to, but I didn't hear well enough to catch these. My space is gone.
Great Sermon! These are what I have learned from this sermon audio:
The Geography of Abrahams calling.
The testimony, idolatry and background
The certainty of his calling from God.
The place that God promise to Abraham is not permanent. Abraham is waiting for the City where God is a builder.
When God called us, we must obey no matter where, what and when.
No comfort. With his attitude of superiority and in his lack of spiritual wisdom, Eliphaz is not comforting Job neither in his teachings, nor in his attitude toward him. He thinks he knows better that Job is living in sin and because of this God is punishing him. He has no ear to listen to Job.
