Nearly Unbelievable If God had not said these things to us in His Word, I could hardly believe them. Knowing just a fraction of my own unworthiness and unloveliness, and then still hearing, seeing and tasting of this matchless, amazing love---why, it fully takes my breath away. Thank you for being bold to preach the message and give us a full-orbed picture of Christ our Beloved.
Great Sermon! Waow!!! What a compelling message. It has allowed me as a minister to look closer to my life and to see that i also need to continue to strive for God's perfecting work. We do and can easily forget that whilst in ministry we should continue to examine ourselves in the mirror of God. I thank God for your life and I pray that He continues to empower you to teach the truth of the Gospel of Jesus the Christ. God bless you richly.
Great Sermon! A good sermon on what the Bible teaches!False religion and the cults and those with no religion deny 'full assurance' because they deny sola scriptura..
'Full Assurance' http://www.spurgeon.org/sermons/0384.htm
'But shall I tell you who the gentlemen are who generally raise objections to the glorious privilege of assurance? There are, first of all, the adherents of the Pope of Rome..'
Spurgeon does a good job also in providing Biblical evidences 'that I have eternal life' in the sermons: HELPS TO FULL ASSURANCE http://www.spurgeongems.org/vols28-30/chs1791.pdf and also 'The Blessing of Full Assurance' http://www.spurgeon.org/sermons/2023.htm
"The Church of Rome teaches that no man can be assured that he has eternal
life...Impossible to know that you are quickened? It ought to be impossible to have any doubt about it! Rationally, a living man should know that he is alive. No man should give sleep to his eyes or slumber to his eyelids while he has a doubt about his eternal state. It is possible and, if it is possible, it is very desirable‚ÄĒfor when a man knows that he has eternal life, what a comfort it is to him!"
Great Sermon! I appreciated the encouragement to have a holy violence toward sin. How often I have brushed sin aside and written it off with 'that's just the way I am'or 'everybody does it'-Oh to be like Him....
Great Sermon! Where do I begin. I am so convicted by this sermon. I am recently single and I wish I would have heard this while still in the relationship. In God's sovereignty, I pray I lead my future wife as a man being conformed to the image of God's Son. I feel so responsible for the positive conformity of my wife to the King.
I want all my fellow young single friends to read this.
Thanks brother Paul, but more importantly, thank You Lord.
Great Sermon! Thank you so much for this message. I know this sermon is for men, but as a woman, this encourages me to stay on a path of being a virtuous woman, quiet spirit, and industrious. Praise God for this message! Thank you so much.
Great Sermon! I cannot believe how true this is!!!!!It is completely representative of churches here. I have been to 5 different churches trying to find just one, with sermons like this. I went to a Bible study where for an hour the discussion was "Should we visit people in prison". The problem was the conversation circled about whether the people felt the prisoners REALLY deserved to be visited. I said nothing, but afterwards, said to the Minister, "I don't get it. I thought that the Bible said all sin is equal in the eyes of God. There is noone without sin, none of us." The minister looked at me and said"NO one wants to hear that today" If anyone knows of a preacher or church like this in NJ let me know. Brother Paul, people may think your a zealot, or rigid and judgemental, but the truth is the truth and we need it. Please don't ever give in. I am adding you to my prayers, and I hope to shake your hand personally after the battle is won, and God willing, we are in Our Eternal Home.
thank you from the bottom of my heart Words cannot express how much of a blessing this was to me. I was searching SermonAudio, asking God for a message of comfort, and he brought me here.
I am currently dealing with an unsaved wife, and experiencing all the doubt about my faith that comes with it. I beg the Lord to save her, I pray, I fast, I have other in my church pray, and fast. But it seems as if she turns colder and colder with each passing day. I don't know how much longer my body can hold up to all the stress and the worry, laying in bed tossing and turning at night while she hops from club to bar, and back to club again. Not knowing who she's with, or what she's doing is killing me, but the greatest burden of all is knowing that the person I love most in this world will perish to a devils hell, if something should happen to her. This message has brought me a little comfort, and much hope. At least now I know there are others that feel my pain, and can relate. Thank you. If I have to wait 19 years for my wife to come to Christ, than so be it. I will remain faithful to her just as Christ is faithful to me. Again, thank you and God Bless
