Great Sermon! this teaching was so powerful and full of truth it moved me to tears. even though I already embraced God's sovereignty in election, it hit so hard at my soul how God is GOD and we are not! I am so humbled that he chose me, and it was for nothing that I did because I did not deserve it! I am a filthy sinner who was agonized as I listened afresh to how God shows mercy to whom He will. Who does the modern church think it is assuming we choose,accept, we come to God? we cannot of our own "free will", because our will is a slave to our sinful nature. we are God rejectors and God haters from the start. All I can do is throw myself at his feet in gratitude and praise for saving me! Just because we cannot fully understand God's ways does not make it untrue. on the contrary. If it's in the Bible it is truth and we must believe and preach it, no matter how 'offensive' it is. Thank you Brother Mike for not backing away from solid Biblical truth and doctrine in exchange for popularity. Truth does divide, but Jesus said it would. All praise and glory and honor and power to our GOD!
Great Sermon! Hello and what a message! Every church should hear this brother speak!
What a blessing to hear our Lord's words through you,does Voddie ever come to the Hudson Wisconsin area or the twin cites?
Powerful Sermon! Brother Mike does a great job giving us insight into Peter as he grows from a simple fisherman to a great Apostle and teacher for the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Outside of focusing on Jesus Christ, I am deeply studying the Apostles -- all great leaders and teachers of the Truth.
The Difficult Doctrine of the Love of God Thanks for preaching the Word! The love of God is certainly assumed by many and studied by few. The result has been a very strong held belief of the unconditional love of God for all people with little Biblical basis or clarity. For a very careful exegetical study on the love of God I would commend to you a short book by D.A. Carson. You can find the book on Amazon at this link, http://www.amazon.com/The-Difficult-Doctrine-Love-God/dp/1581341261/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1374768126&sr=8-3&keywords=The+Love+of+God+D.A.+Carson
Great Sermon! This is a powerful message and a very important one for us as Christians. Even such things as sighing over difficulties without saying anything, are a form of grumbling and complaining. 'Rejoice in the Lord always!'
Strong Sermon! Brother Mike lays it out -- our need to deny self-love and anything else that focuses on ourself. Today's church is in denial and error when it preaches on how we can develop ourselves to get the most out of life -- go for the most for ourselves -- be all you can be. In truth we should become a slave for Jesus Christ -- we should spend our life to bring Glory to God -- to help spread the Gospel. God will reward us in heaven for our Christian works.
Great Sermon! If believers would apply what is said here in every area of life, what a difference we would make in this world for Christ. We wouldn't depend on Washington politicians to do for us what only God can bring about.
Biblical! More of this type of questioning needs to happen. What's the reasoning behind what we do or don't do? Is it supported by Scripture or man's desires that satisfy the flesh? Great teaching.
