Needed Sermon for Today! Irreverence is the mark not only of modern society but even the most conservative churches. The deterioration of dress began in the 1960s. It has become popular now for the most conservative and especially reformed pastors to make a show of taking off their coats (before they even get hot, and in AC buildings) in the pulpits and joining their congregation in 'dressing down for church'. It is a mark in particular among 'New Calvinists'. Do today's Christians imagine Spurgeon would be coatless or in a golf shirt or jeans while preaching the holy word? This casualness and cultural conformity before God is indicted by this sermon because "the fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom".
Very Encouraging Pastor Martin's sermons are always a great refreshment to my soul. I look forward to listening to the rest of this series, though I have already been greatly encouraged in stopping and considering...
Great Sermon! Thank you Pastor for your wondeful message. You said it well: Salvation is not an infatuation with Jesus, a mere emotional attachment, no matter how strong. It is spiritual, eternal, overflowing life poured into the soul that COMES TO JESUS to be filled with His Spirit. I can never be tired to year the Gospel of Christ. Well done, Pastor! In Christ alone, Lia Leigh.
Great Sermon! Pastor Martin continues to be a faitfhul servant of our God. This msg is one that is desperately needed in our day!
Thank you Pastor Martin and may the Lord richly bless your efforts to stir a true revival in the Church.
